BIDDEFORD — Biddeford High School senior Codie Ramos is currently battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and, on Friday night, a local business has more than 100 of Ramos’ classmates, teachers and neighbors ready to join his fight.

Impact Fitness Center has partnered with the Biddeford Athletic Department in organizing a Friday Night Lights Bootcamp, which will be held on Friday at 6 p.m. at Biddeford High School’s Tiger Gym.

The event, which costs just $10 per person, will be led by four certified personal trainers and will feature several drawings for various prizes.

Impact Fitness, which is located in the North Dam Mill, will be providing water as well the personal trainers – and TJ’s Pizza will be donating food for the event. Several other local businesses have also donated to the fundraiser.

All the money raised will go to Ramos, who is a three-sport standout at Biddeford, and his family, which has to make several trips to Boston for Codie’s treatment.

Ramos has already been accepted and plans on attending the University of Maine where he will major in engineering.

To sign up for the event, call Impact Fitness at 602-6242 or email [email protected] If you can’t make it to the event, there is a GoFundMe page setup for Codie. To donate go to www.gofundme.com and search for Codie Ramos.
