New Milford Curves invites women to purchase a $10 punch card for 10 workouts, with proceeds to benefit the American Cancer Society, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"The Curves mission is to strengthen women and this promotion helps us do just that," said Patti Garland. "The punch card is a fun way for women to get involved and help punch out cancer. But more importantly it also gives us the opportunity to teach the importance of exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight. We are committed to providing women with the tools necessary to empower them to live more healthy and fulfilling lives."

The 10 visits must be completed by Nov. 15.
