CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Planet Fitness is quickly expanding its operations in the Cincinnati metro area with four new locations in the last 18 months. Planet Fitness currently operates their “Judgment Free Zone®”, known for its friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere and $10 per month pricing, in Fairfield, Eastgate, and Finneytown. They are also on schedule to open the region’s flagship location in Newport, KY in early April.
“We are excited about our growth in the Cincinnati area and pleased to participate in raising money for this worthy cause”
The investment group behind the Cincinnati expansion has invested millions into the area over the past 18 months and plans additional aggressive expansion and investment in the immediate future.
Now that operations are established, Planet Fitness Cincinnati will participate in raising money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. For every new member who signs up at a participating Planet Fitness gym from Monday, March 26th through Wednesday, April 4th, a $10 donation will be made to the Foundation. More than 320 Planet Fitness gyms across the country will participate in the nine-day sale. Memberships will cost just $10 down, and then $10 a month.
In the past two years, Planet Fitness gyms nationwide have donated $592,522 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation through their springtime promotion.
“We are excited about our growth in the Cincinnati area and pleased to participate in raising money for this worthy cause,” commented John Clancy, Managing Partner. “As we grow here in Cincinnati and nationwide, so will the money Planet Fitness raises to fight breast cancer,” added Clancy.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, is an independent not-for-profit organization committed to funding scientific research to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. In October 2011, BCRF awarded $36.5 million to 186 scientists across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and China. With over 90 cents of every dollar donated currently being directed to breast cancer research and awareness programs, BCRF continues to remain fiscally responsible, while funding brilliant investigators at major medical institutions worldwide.
