KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- October is breast cancer awareness month and one local gym is raising money for research, one kick at time.

FOX 4's Kathy Quinn takes you inside the 9Round gym in Briarcliff for more on the unique opportunity to help raise money for breast cancer awareness.

The gym will donate one penny for every kick recorded during workouts on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Members and non-members are encouraged to stop by their local 9Round gym and kick to help the fight against breast cancer.

More than 250 9Round gyms across the U.S. and Canada will participate, including various 9Round locations throughout Kansas City.

In five years, the event has raised $189,000.
