TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Beat Cancer Boot Camp is holding a grand opening for their new Resource Center located at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park Saturday morning, and the public is invited to attend.

Based in Tucson, Beat Cancer Boot Camp (BCBC) is an exercise program that empowers and inspires cancer survivors to take charge of their health, while conditioning their minds and bodies for healing. The 501(c)3 nonprofit organization was created to encourage and support survivors to engage in physical activity throughout the many stages of fighting cancer. In addition to meeting for exercise, BCBC programs provide support, education and camaraderie for cancer survivors, their families and friends.

BCBC has long conducted outdoor classes at Brandi Fenton Park, and the County provided a small office for the organization in the park's Visitor Center.

The new Resource Center, will be in the east wing of the Visitor Center, and will provide "a safe, quiet, comfortable ‘healing' community place dedicated for use by cancer patients, cancer survivors, their family and friends, and anyone affected by cancer in their lives," said BCBC founder Anita Kellman.

WHEN:  September 28 beginning at 8 a.m. with an outdoor class; then the ribbon cutting at 9 a.m., which will be followed by refreshments and a tour of the center.
