Miramont Lifestyle Fitness Pledges Additional $100,000 To Cancer Center
The PVH and MCR Foundation is pleased to announce that Miramont Lifestyle Fitness has pledged $100,000 toward the complementary therapies main area, included in the Survivorship and Wellness Center at the UCHealth Cancer Center on the Harmony Campus in Fort Collins. This part of the cancer center, expected to be completed in mid-2015, will help support recovery of the cancer patient by providing complementary therapies like massage and speech therapy as well as lymphedema treatments. Miramont has also supported earlier phases of the cancer center and has been recognized for its commitment with a plaque in the main lobby of the facility.
“Miramont is passionate about supporting cancer survivors in our community, and also about fitness and wellness programs that help to foster a happy and healthy quality of life,” explained Cliff Buchholz, Owner of Miramont Lifestyle Fitness. “There could not be a better fit between the goals of the Survivorship and Wellness Center and the goals of Miramont.”
This past September, Miramont hosted the Colorado Moves to End Cancer event, raising $23,500 to support the cancer center through the PVH and MCR Foundation. In addition, the club offers a complimentary Cancer Wellness membership. Any northern Colorado resident who is living with cancer or has undergone treatment within the last two years is eligible to apply for the 6-month Premier membership. A complimentary 6-month membership is available for the patient’s workout buddy as well. A doctor’s note that clears the patient for exercise must be provided to the membership department before membership is activated.
Additionally, through its Cancer WellFit program, the club offers free guest passes to those treated at the cancer center – and their friends and family who may be traveling with them, if they are not northern Colorado residents.
“Miramont and its staff have been steadfast and enthusiastic supporters of the cancer center and the patients we serve in northern Colorado,” said Erica Siemers, senior director, PVH and MCR Foundation. “Donors like Miramont help us fulfill the mission of UCHealth by bridging the gap between standard services and those that enable us to provide world-class healthcare for our community. We can’t do it alone, and we appreciate their partnership.”
