Fitness buffs raise $3K for Newmarket's Southlake hospital (23 photos)

5th annual Megathon helps fund cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation program

The 5th annual Megathon in Bradford took place Saturday morning at the BWG Leisure Centre in support of Newmarket's Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation. 

Over the past five years, the event has raised more than $10,000 for the centre's cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation program. 

The program educates the community and assists individuals with cardiovascular disease and those at risk. 

The day is all about fitness and fun, with various activities set up throughout the centre, from the pool and the gym to the fitness studio upstairs. 
Participants pay $10 for a 35-minute class, or $35 for five classes.

From aquafit to kettlebell circuits, there was something for everyone and the event raised more than $3,000 for the cause.
