Every year JKFITNESS participates in one or more community fitness events to support a great charitable cause. In 2017, JKFITNESS will have a team in the annual Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Climb on January 28th at the Tower of the Americas in San Antonio, TX. This event consists of a the physical feat to climb up 932 steps of the Tower of America followed by a one mile run/walk. Participants can also can choose to climb the steps without the one mile run or complete the run/walk without climbing the stairs (for those of you with joint limitations). You can even sign up to be a virtual climber (i.e. signing up and still raising the funds for a good cause). This event is a fundraiser for the Lone Star Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Funding will go towards finding a cure, research for drug development, individualized treatment, and providing access to specialized care. In years past, the CF Climb raised nearly $2 million! Please consider joining the JKFITNESS team as we support a great cause. Our goal is to get 50 participants signed up.
