SHRUB OAK, N.Y.-Two Shrub Oak fitness centers, United Martial Arts Center and Team Moljo, joined forces on Saturday, March 10, to complete 10,000 Rounds of Fitness at the Jefferson Valley Mall. From burpees to jump rope, participants tallied every round of exercise they completed until the group reached 10,000. Demos, raffles and prizes helped raised $12,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Last year, Chris Berlow, the owner of United Martial Arts Center, also raised money for the charity by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. In a few months, he will set his sights on Everest Base Camp in Nepal.
Danny’s Cycles and PSCB Bank were among the top sponsors of the event, Berlow said.
