SWEATING it out will have more benefits than just getting fit in Leeton this week.
Leeton’s Anytime Fitness gym will be taking part in Tread Together, which is a 24-hour fundraiser for Suicide Prevention Australia and the National Suicide Prevention Research Fund.
The idea is for members and non-members to pre-register to be sponsored to run (or walk, or dance) on a treadmill for as little as 15 minutes, or for any length of time – all the way up to a full 24 hours on a treadmill at the gym.
The event simultaneously kicks off across the country at 3pm on Friday, May 25.
The overall fundraising goal for Tread Together is $500,000 and Leeton shire residents have been called on to do their part.
