NORFOLK, Va. - Strive Fitness and Sports Performance in Williamsburg, Va. will be holding their 6th Annual Treadmill-A-Thon starting in the morning of Friday, October 18, from 8-9 a.m. Three treadmills will be in action for 24 straight hours, as donations will be collected on behalf of Beyond Boobs and/or Hospice House of Williamsburg.
From 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 20, Lady Monarch head coach Karen Barefoot will be the celebrity finisher and will run and finish the event on Sara Jones’ behalf.
