Pedaling for a Cause

On Saturday, Oct. 23, Basecamp Fitness hosted a day of workouts to raise funds for Breast Cancer Recovery, a Fitchburg-based nonprofit dedicated to helping breast cancer survivors heal emotionally by offering retreats designed to both inspire and comfort. During the classes, Basecamp Fitness donated one dollar to Breast Cancer Recovery for every mile Basecamp participants pedaled on their bikes.

This Pedal for a Cause event included all three Madison Basecamp Fitness studios, located at 1730 Monroe St., 309 Junction Road, and the newest studio located at 4704 E. Washington Ave. Prior to this event, the fitness brand has also pedaled to support Carbone Cancer Center, Madison YWCA, and GSafe. According to Taylor Westrick, Basecamp Fitness area coach, “With multiple locations in Madison, we can make an even bigger impact in our community with our Pedal for a Cause workouts. Our 35-minute classes give participants the opportunity to ride 5, 6, or even 7 miles on the bike.”
