Local gym runs fundraising campaigns for Special Olympics

Anytime Fitness in Seymour once again supports the Indiana Jackson County Special Olympics.

For the third year in a row, the gym has selected the non-profit organization to benefit from the annual “Train Your Trainer” fundraiser.

Members and customers can sign up for a 10-minute spot to train the Anytime Fitness employee of their choice for a donation to Special Olympics. On November 23, staff will sweat from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the gym, 840 E. Tipton St.

New this year, Anytime Fitness is running a virtual 5K called Burn the Turkey, where anyone can do a 5K between November 25th and 30th. The cost is $ 30 and includes a t-shirt, medal, and race number. You don’t have to be an Anytime Fitness member to participate.

Registration is possible online at afinoh.myshopify.com/products/burntheturkey-virtual-5k. A portion of the registration fee will be donated to Special Olympics, which offers year-round sports training and athletic competitions for people with intellectual disabilities aged 8 and over. State and local fundraisers are held throughout the year to keep the program free for the athletes.
