About Us

THE NEED

Cancer treatments often leave the body diminished in function, affecting one’s state of mind and quality of life. Medical studies prove that exercise helps minimize the detrimental side-effects of cancer treatment, aiding in the return to a better quality of life. FIT TO FIGHT helps cancer survivors re-establish trust in their bodies and return to daily life as productive members of our community.

OUR GOALS

  • Provide positive group exercise
  • Provide opportunity for social interaction, support, and exchange with others who are fighting or have fought cancer
  • Involve the community in supporting cancer patients and aiding survivors in their return to a quality of life that is productive and satisfying

OUR MISSION: Empower cancer survivors to improve their quality of life through a program of fitness and health.
