2020 Fitness Retreat
Was a Success
We had such an incredible time at our 2020 Fitness Retreat on February 8th and 9th on Bainbridge Island. Our theme was “25 Years. Celebrating the Power Within.” We learned from experts in cancer care, improved our physical health with a variety of fitness classes, laughed, cried, sang and created new friendships.

We believe in the power of fitness to improve women’s lives after a cancer diagnosis. Our belief is backed by research, science and women who have walked through our doors. Fitness and an active lifestyle not only improve outcomes but empower women survivors to feel better and thrive. Read some of our member’s stories here or watch the video below.
