Awesome Peak Fitness Fundraiser: Over $20,000 Raised

The Annual Charity Bike Ride organized by Peak Fitness raised over $20,000 for local first responders within Kootenai County and it's surrounding areas. The event was held at the Peak Fitness Post Falls location Friday February 19th. Riders arrived around 6am with many others visiting into the evening when the event ended at midnight. Peak Fitness's very own Joe Houser rode and raised funds for the entire length of the event. What a champion! Thanks Joe.

In May of 2015,  Coeur d'Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore was tragically shot and killed in the line of duty. The Annual Peak Fitness Charity Ride was organized in support of Sgt. Greg Moore's memory. The $20,000 will make it possible for Kootenai County Police and Fire Memorial Foundation to continue providing financial support to first responders during their time in need.

If you missed the event and couldn't make it you can give now in the amount of $35.00!

Finally thank you to the Peak Fitness Annual Charity Bike Ride which was an enormous success and in no small part due to the participation of our Sponsors. Thank you for showing support for the event and for our local community.
