Denali Fitness hopes to raise 10k this Thanksgiving

November 23rd, 2009 by Thea

Denali Fitness will be offering two hours of classes on Thanksgiving day this Thursday, November 26 for their 4th Annual Turkey Drive to raise money for Northwest Harvest. Last year the fitness club raised just under $5,000, and this year they hope to pass the $10,000 mark.

Denali will be offering a variety of classes at both their Interbay and Madison Park locations, and have challenged The Fitness Lab, a personal training studio in Fremont, to run a simultaneous event.

“The heat is on,” wrote Tricia Murphy Madden, Group Fitness Director at Denali, in an email last week. ” If between the three clubs we raise 10K, we will provide almost 6,200 meals to adults and children who otherwise would go without.”

Here’s the schedule for the Interbay club:

  • 8:30 a.m. – cycling with Tommy
  • 9:00 a.m. – Turkey Burner Boot camp Andy
  • 9:30 a.m. – cycling with Don

Classes are filling up quickly, so if you would like to sign up be sure to get to it soon. Denali is asking for $20 donations, though members frequently give more. ” Last year we had a member write a check for $1000 at the end of the class because he was so moved by the experience,” Madden wrote.

Call (206) 282-7400 or email for more information or to register for classes.

Denali Fitness is a sponsor of QueenAnneView.
