Curves, the largest fitness club chain in the world for women and a leader in the weight management category, announced in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, residents in Harvey County are invited to purchase a $10 punch card for 10 workouts at Curves, with proceeds going to the local chapter of Victory in the Valley.

The 10 workouts can be done in honor of someone who has battled breast cancer and a poster will be up in the club for each participant to sign as a way to show community support. The 30-minute Curves Circuit features a full body workout with strength training and cardio.

“The Curves mission is to strengthen women, and this promotion helps us do just that,” said club owner Cathy Edwards. “The punch card is a fun way for women to get involved and help punch out cancer, but it also gives us the opportunity to teach the importance of exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight. After all, 30 minutes of ‘me’ time is always a good thing.”

“Women are always looking for new, unique ways to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. The Curves 10-Workout Punch Card is a great way to not only donate money to a special cause, but it is also a fun way to help improve your own personal health,” said Mike Raymond, vice president of marketing for Curves International Inc. “Breast cancer continues to be among the most common cancer for women worldwide. We are honored to be aiding in the fight.”

This offer is limited to one 10 workout punch card per person. Not valid with any other offer, no cash value and new fitness members only at participating locations. The 10 visits must be completed by Nov. 15, 2013.
