Friday, February 23, 2018

Join the Harrison Family YMCA in its second Spin-a-thon fundraiser for its Annual Campaign from 7:30-9:45 a.m. on March 3.

Your support and your ride this day lends superhuman strength to YMCA healthier lives for all, day camps, scholarships, programs and helps reveal the superhero inside kids, families and our whole community. This will be an amazing experience of two superhero themed and energetic indoor cycle rides with education about the impact the Y makes in many lives, because of YMCA volunteers and donors in the community.

On that Saturday, there will be two separate cycle classes in the Studio Room at the Harrison Family YMCA, at 1000 Independence Drive. Please come dressed in your favorite super hero attire. A limited amount of superhero masks and capes will be provided. There will also be fruit and water available for participants.

Super Hero Rides

■ 7:30-8:30 a.m. — Superhuman Speed

■ 8:45-9:45 a.m. — Superhuman Strength

If you enjoy exercise and helping your community, you should try this out whether you are a Y member or not. Each hour long class is a donation of $5 per bike when you pre-register. Price per bike will increase the day of the ride. Opportunities to give a larger gift will be available after your ride, outside of the studio. All donations will go towards the YMCA’s 2018 Annual Campaign.

Each class only holds 24 bikes so you must register quickly to reserve your spot. Anyone may register and pay online at harrisonfamilyy.org or at the YMCA’s front desk. All participants will also receive a memorable event T-shirt.

Our annual campaign donors make it possible for children, families and adults to have access to Y programs that improve their lives. We know that some individuals and families struggle to pay the rent, put food on the table and buy clothes for their kids. One hundred percent of the funds raised are used to provide financial assistance in the form of full and partial scholarships, based on individual need, as well as outreach programs, which are then made available to participants at little or no charge.

To take your first step in making a difference or if you are interested in volunteering for the campaign, contact Development Director Alyssa Matthews at 252-972-9622 ext. 232 or amatthews@rmymca.org.
