The Chris Burge Tennis Classic was created in memory of Chris Burge, a Miramont Lifestyle Fitness member, friend to many and an avid tennis player. Chris battled nonsmoking lung cancer but sadly lost her fight in 2007.

The Chris Burge Tennis Classic was the flagship program for Colorado Moves to End Cancer, a fundraising and awareness campaign operated by Miramont Lifestyle Fitnesss’ charitable arm, Miramont Cares. Colorado Moves to End Cancer provides multiple opportunities for the Northern Colorado community to be active, engage with others and support two outstanding health organizations fighting cancer through research and awareness.
