Stamford Athletic Club Installs Cybex Pink Treadmill And Supports Breast Cancer Research

“Why would Stamford Athletic Club purchase a pink treadmill? Because its manufacturer, Cybex International, Inc. will pay 10¢ a mile to support breast cancer research for every mile logged on the new pink treadmill for the month of October, 2009, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Glenn Colarossi, Managing Director states “Stamford Athletic Club recognizes that breast cancer is the #2 cause of cancer death in U.S. women. We want to be part of the national effort to find a cure, for our members who are women and for women everywhere. When CYBEX offered us the opportunity to join the partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, we enthusiastically accepted. We think members will choose to work out on the pink treadmill Additionally, we will open our Club to all individuals, not just members, to walk/run on this treadmill to raise even more money towards finding a cure. So many people have been impacted by this terrible disease, that I don’t want to limit this fund raising effort just to our members” said Glenn Colarossi.”
