9Round, the Greenville-based kickboxing gym franchise, is hosting its fifth annual Kick Event for Breast Cancer on Thursday.

The gym franchise said the gyms around the country will offer fitness enthusiasts a unique opportunity to help raise money for breast cancer awareness and donate one penny for every kick recorded at the gyms throughout the day.

Thursday’s goal is 2 million kicks, or $20,000.

Since the event's inception five years ago, participating 9Round locations have recorded over 18.8 million kicks and raised nearly $189,000 to help develop breast cancer treatment and laboratory research.
