Eau Claire (WQOW) - Knocking out breast cancer is the goal for one Eau Claire business, and you can help the cause.
Thursday at 9Round, an Eau Claire kick-boxing gym, fans of fitness had the ability to raise money to fight breast cancer. Participants did not have to be a member, it was free to participate in a training session, and each kick equaled a one cent donation to the cause.
Nationwide, the business hopes to raise $20,000, which co-manager Jenna Slaughter says will help people fighting the disease in our area during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
"Everybody knows somebody who has had to struggle with this at some point in their life," Slaughter said. "Whether it be your mom, your sister, your grandma, everybody knows at least one person that this is really personal for."
If you could not make it to the fundraising event on Thursday, but still want to help the cause, all you need to do is check in to 9Round on Facebook from wherever you are. For every three people who check in, a ovarian or breast cancer assessment will be donated to somebody in need.
