Local fitness blog hosts fundraiser workout for The Victory Project

Working out is always beneficial to the person wanting to remain fit and healthy but sometimes it can also benefit the community.

Last week blog writer and fiancé to Sporting KC defender Chance Myers - Kirsten Gradinger - hosted the one-year birthday of her blog WTFARTLEK by hosting a fundraising workout at Health House. The donation-based class featured an intense combination of rowing, strength training and cardio by gym owner John Knopke. Participants purchased raffle tickets for prize packs provided by local companies and were given a post-workout snack provided by Simple Science Juices. A total of over $800 was raised to help The Victory Project further its mission of helping children who are battling cancer.
