LOS ANGELES, CA (June 7, 2017) – YAS Fitness Centers and Cancer Support Community Los Angeles (CSCLA) are teaming up for their annual YAS-A-THON on Sunday, June 25, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at three YAS Fitness Centers:  245 Main Street, Venice; 1932 Hyperion Ave., Silverlake; and 831 S. Hope Street, Los Angeles.  The three-hour cycle-thon will benefit the FREE programs and services provided by CSCLA for people impacted by cancer.

10560983_332085080249599_1211971773_nParticipants will enjoy three hours of cycling to invigorating music led by motivating, professional YAS fitness instructors.  There will be an array of healthy snacks and beverages provided to keep cyclers hydrated and energized.   Top fundraisers will receive sought after prizes, including an Aero Spin Bike, 66 Audio Bluetooth fitness headphones, and more!

Since the opening of YAS Fitness Center, Kimberly Fowler, founder, had a vision – an event that would tie two of her passions together, fitness and philanthropy. YAS Fitness Centers pioneered the unique combination of yoga and spinning® and has raised more than $2 million for a variety of organizations focusing on cancer research and programs benefiting those impacted by cancer.

“Cancer Support Community is so fortunate to have the support of Kimberly Fowler and the YAS Fitness Centers who have demonstrated a long-standing commitment to health and fitness,” said Julia Forth, Executive Director, CSC.  “Their vision, generosity and devotion enable us to provide FREE services to cancer patients and families, including support groups, counseling, healthy lifestyle classes, educational lectures, family programs and so much more.  Cancer Support Community is proud to have them as part of our family.”

“We are thrilled to host YAS-A-Thon once again to support the amazing FREE programs at CSC Los Angeles,” said Kimberly Fowler, YAS Fitness founder.  “As a cancer survivor, this organization is close to my heart and they provide much needed hope to cancer patients and their families.  CSC is truly dedicated to improving and saving lives.”

About the Cancer Support Community Los Angeles

CSC’s mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.  In 2009, The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community.  The combined organization provides the highest quality social and emotional support for people impacted by cancer through a network of 50 licensed affiliates, more than 120 satellite locations and vibrant online and telephone communities, touching more than one million people each year.  The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer and the Institute of Medicine advocate that services provided by CSC are an integral part of quality “patient-centered” cancer care. Cancer Support Community Los Angeles was founded in 1982 in Santa Monica, California by Dr. Harold and Harriet Benjamin.  Cancer Support Community Los Angeles offers 100% free, invaluable emotional and psychological support and healthy life-style services, including education, family and social activities.
