Get fit, fight cancer at Anytime Fitness Saturday

Cheryl Hartz
News Editor

Try spinning and help in the fight against cancer at the same time this Saturday at Anytime Fitness in Prescott Valley. And you don't need a gym membership to do it.

There's no admission fee for stationary bicycle (spin) classes, and all money collected at the donation-only event will go to the Ronan Thompson Foundation to benefit cancer research. Phoenix boy "Rockstar Ronan" was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer in August 2010, and died May 9, 2011, when he was only 4 years old.

Anytime Fitness will add spin classes as needed throughout the day as people sign up. Classes at 9, 10:30 a.m. and noon already are full, and a few spots remain in the 1:30 p.m. class. If more people sign up, 3 p.m. is the next class gym co-owner Leanne Shearer will conduct. Anyone who's taken even one spin class will understand her dedication to this cause by leading consecutive - and exhausting - sessions.

Country superstar Taylor Swift won't be spinning, but she did write a song about Ronan with help from his mother. Proceeds from sales of the single go to cancer research. Have tissues handy when listening at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS7JrI-JPOc&feature=youtu.be.

To register for Saturday spin, call 928-443-5701 or stop by Anytime Fitness at 6715 E. 2nd St., Suite A, Prescott Valley (across from Stepping Stones coffee shop).
