Special treadmills at local Planet Fitness gyms raise money for cancer research

SUFFOLK, Va. - Been looking for creative ways to give back to those who need support? 

If you're a member at Planet Fitness, the next time you hit the gym, you can help raise money for cancer research one mile at a time.

Locations in the Hampton Roads area have one of their treadmills decorated in pink for breast cancer awareness. For every mile run on the machine, Planet Fitness donates a dollar to cancer research.

Managers at the Suffolk location on East Constance Road tell News 3 the treadmill has been a hit.

The treadmills will remain decorated through the month of October.

All 11 Planet Fitness locations in Hampton Roads are participating.
