First Coastin’ for Cancer Run Takes Over Falls Park

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.- About 200 people went for a run through Falls Park Sunday morning with a little bit of a twist.

Today was the first official Coastin’ for Cancer event hosted by Coast 2 Coast Fitness.

The event, which included a 5k, 10k and a mile run added an extra element to a traditional run.

With checkpoints throughout the course where participants complete a short “pit stop” workouts.

The event was put on to benefit the JY6 Foundation, which supports research to end leukemia and pediatric cancers.

“Cancer has affected many people’s lives, and I’m sure its affected every one of these people’s lives one way or another so we just wanted to find a way to make an impact and give back as much as we could,” Ryan Pingery Head Trainer at Coast 2 Coast.

Coast 2 Coast says this is their first time hosting the event, and they hope to continue, and grow it in the future.
