Bethel Park's Healthtrax Fitness & Wellness staff and members, along with local small businesses, enthusiastically raised $6,612 to benefit local 18-year-old Marissa Oakley.
Marissa, the daughter of Healthtrax spin instructor Marnie Oakley, unexpectedly became gravely ill this fall. Marissa is undergoing rehabilitation and is now walking without a cane. Her speech is slowly returning. She has lost memory of anything before the onset of the devastating illness and seizures.
"Our goal of raising $1,500 was quadrupled due the generosity of so many caring people wanting to help the Oakley family. Presenting them with this $6,612 check was very touching and rewarding for all involved," said Peg Gregor, National Director of Group Fitness for Healthtrax and Bethel Park event coordinator.
