On Saturday, January 30, DetecTogether celebrated its new name and renewed commitment to teaching people how to detect cancer early with a community-wide event called Let’s Move! We partnered with local fitness facilities, including The Core Connection of Northborough, PEAK Fitness of Worcester, and LIFT Fitness of Holden, to offer live-streamed exercise classes. Participants could take one or all of the classes, join the group for a live Peloton bike ride, or simply move their own way throughout the day.
“Exercise makes us healthier and happier, and lowers our risk for certain cancers,” says Jim Coghlin, DetecTogether Founder. “Working out together is fun, motivating, and a great way for us to celebrate when we’re not able to gather.”
Let’s Move! was sponsored by UniBank. Participants were asked to come together during the event by sharing photos on the community Let’s Move! page, celebrating individual achievements and participation.
“We were thrilled that so many people could join us to get moving on a cold January morning and celebrate the life-saving work that we do together,” says Tricia Laursen, DetecTogether President and Executive Director. “We extend special thanks to our presenting sponsor, UniBank and our exceptional fitness partners. We all had a great time.”
