Swansea Total Fitness Hosts Thanksgiving 5k Run & 3k Walk To Benefit Multiple Sclerosis.

Swansea, MA, November 03, 2014 --( Total Fitness Clubs (TFC) announced today they will be holding their first Thanksgiving 5k Run & 3k Walk on Thursday, November 27, 2014 at their Swansea, MA location, Swansea Total Fitness. 100% of the proceeds from this Event will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.

Multiple sclerosis is a genetic disease that causes the body to attack its own nervous system. This leads to a variety of mild to severe symptoms ranging from numbness to loss of sight, or even to complete paralysis. Advancements in treatment have enabled most people suffering from MS to live a normal life.

“In addition to providing an event that will help keep people active during the Thanksgiving holiday, our fitness community includes staff and members who have MS. Our goal is to raise awareness and help with funding for better MS treatments,” said Mark Garganta, Manager of Operations, Total Fitness Clubs.

The Event starts at 8 a.m. and will begin rain or shine. 3craceproductions will be timing the race and supplying numbers. The Event route will be traveling north out of the parking lot onto Swansea Mall Drive up to Locust Street then turn back around and finish at the Swansea Crossing parking lot at the corner of Swansea Mall Dr. & Milford Rd. Registration fee is $25.00 and participants can register both online and onsite the day of the Event ($30.00 registration fee for day of race).

The first 100 people to register receive an exclusive Swansea Total Fitness race t-shirt. At the commencement of the Event there will be a raffle for prizes for participants, all participants will also receive a free 7-day pass to Swansea Total Fitness, located at 207 Swansea Mall Drive.
