It’s not every day that your workout helps someone other than yourself – but that’s the case with Frankie’s Lift For A Cause.

Frankie’s Body Shop will be hosting a fundraiser to help raise money for two kids battling leukemia.

The 2018 Lift For A Cause will benefit Noah Sileno and Hattie Halter, who both were born with leukemia.

Hattie just had a bone marrow transplant about a month ago. Noah is currently in remission and has to undergo chemotherapy treatments for the next three years.

Knoxville area gym, Frankie’s Body Shop, is hoping to help these kids in a big way. 

“So we chose these two kids because we want to really help these families out cause they have a lots of needs with financial needs.. Being in the hospital all the time a lot of bills that come with that …to put a face to it,” said President of Frankie’s Lift For A Cause, Chloe Padilla. 

The Lift For A Cause competition will be Saturday, Dec. 29 starting at 10 a.m.
