Fitness enthusiasts kick out breast cancer

MAUMEE (WTVG) - 9Round is a 30 minute circuit style kick boxing workout for fitness enthusiasts.

On Thursday, at more than 500 9Round locations people didn't just workout, they kicked to raise money for breast cancer research. Since the event's inception nearly $370,000 have been raised to "advance breast cancer treatment and laboratory research."

Maumee's 9Round owner Steve Richie said, "I think my top member is at 1200 kicks in just 30 minutes."

Monica Gottfried said she worked out Thursday morning. She said she kicked for a friend.

"The name on my back is Kathleen Fincher. She's a friend of mine who is fighting cancer right now. She's my hero," said Gottfried the new Owner of 9Round in Sylvania.

9Round has locations in Perrysburg and Maumee. A new location will open soon in Sylvania.
