About Celebrate Fitness 2014
Celebrate Fitness is a ninety-minute fitness workshop for men and women held at the Washington University Athletic Complex.
In its fourteeth year, Celebrate Fitness has grown from a one workout event in a high school gym to the multi-workout format that it is today. To date Celebrate Fitness has netted over $1,000,000 to support cancer research and support projects at Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. This year’s event will be held March 8, 2014.
Participants may choose from one of eight workouts. Indoor activities include Zumba, yoga and water aerobics. The outdoor activities include boot camp, a competitive 10k run, a competitive 5k run or a 5k walk.

THE YOUNG WOMEN’S BREAST CANCER PROGRAM at Siteman Cancer Center is dedicated to providing support, raising awareness and conducting research focused on the unique issues surrounding breast cancer diagnosed in women under the age of 44. Of the over 180,000 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer, over 12% will be 44 or younger. These women experience higher recurrence rates and the lowest five-year and overall survival rates. There is little research focused specifically on young women with breast cancer and few support programs available to them.
