Gold’s Gym in Howard Beach raised money this month in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month — a cause that is close to the organization’s heart.
Golds Gym staff member Anisa Elmer lost her mother to breast cancer. Gym staff honored Hope Elmer by having A & J Stitching up pink shirts to raise awareness.
Throughout October, the staff, top, and some members, donned pink. Donations were raised on Oct. 16 and with the support of the members, raised $800.
Sporting the pink shirts, above, are staff members Bianca Muniz, left, Priscilla Muniz, Elmer, Justine Orr, Millie Matias and Claudia McCabe, wearing boxing gloves.
