The Lincoln Area YMCA could be the
beneficiary of up to $1,000 as part of the Champion Fitness Physical
Therapy 15th anniversary celebration. The Champion Fitness clinic in
Lincoln, 2201 Woodlawn Road, Suite 400, will be part of a 15-clinic
competition, trying to bring the top prize of $1,000 to the Lincoln
"With this year being our 15th anniversary, we thought we'd have a
little fun," said Jeff Schade, owner of Champion Fitness Physical
Therapy. "We're always looking for ways to promote fitness,
especially in our youth, and youth organizations like the Boys and
Girls Clubs or YMCAs do so much to help kids out. We also run
competitions for clinics each year, but this year we decided to
reward the communities that our clinics are located in, rather than
just the people themselves."
The focal event for the Lincoln
clinic will be the annual open house, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 1
p.m. June 23. Former and current patients, along with all community
members, are invited to stop by, enjoy a free lunch prepared by the
Champion staff, check out some of the surprises on hand and register
for several prizes. Each clinic will award local prizes, but
everyone who registers will also be eligible for the grand prize

"People can either register at the clinic, or they can register
online at our website www.champfit.com," Schade noted. "Or, better
yet, they can do both!"
The clinics will be judged on the number of people who register
for the prizes, the number of people who actually attend their open
house, the way the event is promoted in their community, the visual
display the clinic designs for their open house day, plus one final
"After all of the open houses are finished, we are going to allow
the patients, the people who stopped in, the community members,
everybody to go online and vote for the clinic that did the best job
in promoting the entire event. That round counts double scoring, so
it ought to be interesting," Schade said.

The top prize for the winning clinic and community is a check for
$1,000 to be donated to the community's local youth organization.
Second prize is a check for $750; third prize is a check for $500;
and fourth prize will be a check for $250.
The Lincoln Area YMCA is excited to a part of this contest.
"We're thrilled to be asked. We're sure willing to do our part to
help our Lincoln clinic out," a Y representative said.
"We think this (is) a great way for our communities and clinics
to bond," Schade remarked. "It's a win-win for everybody involved,
and it ought to be a lot of fun. We can't wait to get started."
The open houses run from June 21 to Aug. 11. All prize winners
will be announced on Aug. 18. For more information, go to
