YMCA Raises Money for Breast Cancer Awareness

SHREVEPORT, LA(KSLA) – Since October is breast cancer awareness month, the YMCA of Northwest Louisiana is showing its support with a new pink treadmill.

The manufacturer Cybex international will pay ten cents for every mile jogged on the special treadmill to go to breast cancer awareness foundation.

Research shows women can reduce their breast cancer risk up to 23 percent with six or more hours of exercise each week.

YMCA officials say they hope members will use the treadmill to get one step closer to a cure.
