YAS-A-THON for ThinkCure Hits it Out of the Park: $140,000 Raised, 270,000 Calories Burned!
Date:6/22/2010

The Dodger's Annual ThinkCure Weekend to raise money for cancer research in Los Angeles took place June 10-12 at Dodger Stadium and YAS-A-THON for Thinkcure—YAS Fitness Centers' fundraising for the event—took in more than $140,000. That made YAS the largest single donor of ThinkCure Weekend. Talk about a home run!

(PRWEB) June 22, 2010 -- YAS's founder and owner, Kimberly Fowler, an athlete and cancer survivor herself, was clearly pumped as she and Sherri Rosen, YAS VP of Operations, presented a very large check to ThinkCure, the official charity of the Los Angeles Dodgers, on the field at the Saturday night's game.

YAS-A-THON's three hours of indoor cycling at four Los Angeles-area YAS locations took place on June 6, the Sunday prior to ThinkCure Weekend. In addition to burning a whole lot of calories, the indoor cycling marathons (and silent auctions that accompanied them) significantly raised the bar for YAS fundraising.

"YAS has hosted many fundraisers since opening in 2001," says Fowler. "Giving back to the community is a big part of what YAS is all about. But the amount of money we raised for ThinkCure was unprecedented for us and, I think, the fitness community in general."

Fowler joined Fox Sports' Patrick O'Neil and ThinkCure president Janet Clayton on the air to encourage viewers to continue giving to the Dodger's cancer-fighting charity. Along the way, O'Neil playfully engaged Fowler in a "gun show," impressed as he was by her "yoga arms." Fowler, whose new book "The No OM Zone: No Chanting, No Granola, No Sanskrit" arrives in bookstores July 6, is a leading yoga expert, in addition to being a longtime, dedicated fundraiser for community and global causes.

"Kimberly and YAS really stepped up for ThinkCure," said Janet Clayton, ThinkCure's president. "I visited YAS Venice during
