Organizers recently wrapped up the Slim to Win fundraiser benefiting the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Montgomery Co after eight weeks of workouts and fundraising with trainer, Casey Spencer. The group had around 50 participants in the competition who raised more than $7,500 for those affected by breast cancer. 
To be eligible for the two prizes, participants had to fundraise a minimum of $250. Mike Dinius, who lost 6.3 percent body weight, won the 1-year membership to Athena Sport & Fitness, donated by Denise Reese to keep up with his healthy lifestyle. An 11-year old participant, Eva Spencer, raised the most in donations, $679, and won the $250 prize donated by Hoosier Heartland State Bank which she very heartwarmingly donated back to the cause giving her a total raised $929. 
In the spirit of showing how working out can be fun, Brad and Karen Monts ran a fundraiser at Athena Sport & Fitness in which trainers Denise Reese, Cody Bowlus, Jenny Kixmiller, and Casey Spencer all allowed them to have a jar with their picture and names on them and the jar that sold the most tickets would get a pie thrown in their face by one of the ticket buyers. Casey Spencer's jar won with more than $200 in it and Mike Dinius was the lucky one who had his name drawn and got to throw the pie in Casey's face. 
Making Strides is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in Montgomery County this year. The walk will be on Saturday, Oct. 27. More details about the walk will come.
Question of the Week:

Spring officially hits the calendar Tuesday. But says it's still going to be chilly. Are you ready for warmer temps?
