WHO participates? Grab your friends, family, co-workers, people you meet at the gym or your book club and put a team together! You'll need 6-12 people for your team and fun name for the event. But don't worry – if you can't build a whole team or think of a name – we can help with both! There is one registration fee of $120 per team and each member is asked to collect a minimum of $50 in pledges – so it's really easy to participate!
WHAT is a Spin-A-Thon? Each team is assigned a bike for the entire event. There must always be a member on the bike through the day. Typically a new member takes over for each hour, but you are welcome to set a schedule that works for your team. We've got a fun theme planned for each hour – cowboy, glam, pirate and a whole lot more. So dig out your costumes (don't worry, we've got loads) and be ready to spin!
WHY do we do this? Each year Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation raises funds to purchase essential equipment for your hospital. Good health is something that we often take for granted. We don't think much about it until something happens to us, or to our loved ones. When we invest in health care, we are investing in our future. This year we'll be funding close to $600,000 in equipment for a number of departments at RMH.
WHERE do the bikes come from? We're very lucky to have our friends at Fitness Unlimited support this event so generously. They close down their spin classes for the day and send their bikes on field trip for us to use! Fit-U spin instructors volunteer their time to lead each hour, crank the music and really make the whole event loads of fun!
WHEN is this happening? We're excited to join the fun at the Earth Day festivities on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Memorial Park. From 9:00am to 3:00pm the bandstand will be Spin-A-Thon central with the bikes, music, costume box and snacks set up for the event. We'll have lots of folks checking out the fun and cheering you on!
HOW do I register? The registration package is below and includes everything you need to participate. Be sure to contact the Foundation office to reserve a bike for your team for the event. We've got some great sponsorship opportunities too!
