Orangetheory Fitness Franklin is holding an event to benefit ALS today, Saturday, March 3. All members of the community are invited to take part in a 90-minute class which begins at 11:30 am at the Franklin location, 3301 Aspen Grove Drive. You don’t have to be a member to join the class.
The goal for each studio varies but the Franklin studio would like to raise $4,000. By joining the class you can help them reach their goal. The class fee is $25. Orangetheory across the country is partnering with Augie’s Quest for a second year in a fund-raising effort. The fitness group more than doubled its 2017 fundraising goal, collecting over $2.085 million in two weeks.
This year’s campaign, #IBurnForALS, will take place from Feb. 15 to March 8, with more than 800 studios in North America challenging members to donate at least $1 per “splat point” achieved. A splat point is earned each minute a member spends in the Orange Zone, the target-training zone of 84 to 91 percent of their heart rate.
