Representatives from Fit Body Boot Camp in West Lebanon, NH, delivered a check in the amount of $3,042 on Wednesday, November 16, to Dartmouth Cancer Center. Money for the donation was collected through community group workout events at Fit Body Boot Camp. This donation was part of an effort by gym director Patti Friedman to honor the memory of the gym’s former owner, who passed away from cancer. The gym community is dedicated to supporting Dartmouth Cancer Center and makes a special effort to support cancer patients and survivor members.
Present for the donation were Friedman, who organized the event; Judy Csatari, chair of the Friends of the Dartmouth Cancer Center Board of Directors; and Fit Body Boot Camp members Lanni West, Michelle Chadburn and Cindy Bolduc, who are all survivors of breast cancer. West and Bolduc both received cancer treatment at Dartmouth Cancer Center and Bolduc is also a nurse manager at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
