Basecamp Fitness Pedaling to Support UW Carbone Cancer Center
New Fitness Studio Raises Money to Support Cancer Research
Madison, WI 01/08/2020 - Basecamp Fitness will be pedaling for a cause Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18 during the Well Expo Madison at the Monona Terrace. For every mile pedaled on their bikes, Basecamp Fitness will donate one dollar to the UW Carbone Cancer Center.
Basecamp Fitness will be opening its first Madison location on Monroe Street this winter. Basecamp's high-energy workout sessions alternate 60-second bursts of various strength-training exercises with 60-seconds on a stationary air bike that works as hard as you do -- the faster you pedal, the more resistance you feel.
Basecamp Fitness will be attending the Well ExpoMadison, January 17 and 18 at the Monona Terrace, where they will be inviting Well Expo attendees to Pedal for a Cause. Attendees can experience the stationary bike and pedal as hard as they can for a 60-second burst. At the end of the event, Basecamp will calculate total miles pedaled and donate one dollar for every mile. The money raised during the event will benefit UW Carbone.
UW Carbone is Wisconsin’s only federally designated comprehensive cancer center and combines cutting-edge research with outstanding patient care. Basecamp selected UW Carbone as the beneficiary of this Pedal for a Cause because “we personally have had many loved ones impacted by cancer, and so have many others,” explains Basecamp Madison Area Coach Taylor Westrick. “Our mission at Basecamp is to build strong hearts and a strong community that extends beyond our studio walls. We’re excited to use this opportunity to support the UW Carbone Cancer Center because of the impact they make in the lives of so many in our community”.
Experience the Basecamp stationary air bike and help raise money for UW Carbone by attending the Well Expo Madison at the Monona Terrace, Friday, January 17 from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm and January 18 from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm and visiting Basecamp Fitness at booth 116.
