To Benefit the Children and Families from Why Me/Sherry’s House.
Sunday, March 3rd 8am-12pm Worcester Fitness
Join Worcester Fitness Nation for our Annual Spin-a-Thon to benefit Why Me/Sherry’s House.
Why Me stands for Worcester Helps Youth - Memories Everlasting and they have a fantastic home for the families of children fighting cancer called Sherry’s House. Over 90% of the funds raised will go directly to help the children. You can’t get a more powerful charity and it helps people right here in our community. This will be one of the most memorable and powerful events you’ve ever attended!
For over 10 years, the annual Spin-a-Thon benefited the American Cancer Society and raised over $100,000. Last year, we moved our efforts to Why Me/Sherry’s House and we raised over $22,000!
Here’s how it works: We have 30 bikes in a huge and special room filled with the most positive happy people you’ve ever met. The instructors play music, motivate you, encouraging you to sing, dance, spin and sweat your way through the 3-hour event. Some will ride the entire time themselves, many will stay on the bike the entire time without taking a break. Others will team up to share a bike with teams from 2 to 6 people swapping off at intervals determined by the team captain and the teammates. Children and families from Why Me/Sherry’s House will join us to share their impact story and to ride the bikes with us! Costumes and other fun plans are strongly encouraged and welcomed!
Fundraising: Each bike is responsible for a minimum of $300.00. We will provide you with an online fundraising page that you can share with your social media contacts, friends and family so they can donate to your efforts in a safe and secure manner. We ask each rider to register with a $25.00 initial deposit that goes to your $300 requirement. The funds will pour in as was proven last year with 30 riders raising $22,000!
Shirts, Energy and a Party: Each registered rider will receive an exclusive awesome shirt. During the ride, volunteers will offer snacks, drinks and other energy boosting supplies to get yours through your ride. Pretzels, Starburst, Gatorade, and water. After the event, there will be a big party at MacDonald’s Tavern at Worcester Fitness!
Can’t Ride but want to Help?: For $300, you can have your company logo added to the back of our shirt and be mentioned countless times in our social media networks. Also, you can make donations toward the event, or specific riders. Additionally, you can come volunteer, cheer, sing and dance and come to the party after! Contact Andy to set this up!
How to Join the Fun!: Contact Director of Health and Wellness Andy Sharry at (508)852-8209 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a bike. I will send you the fundraising link where you can register for $25.00. If you are riding with a team, I’ll need to know the names and contact information for each rider and they will have to register. You’ll need to supply me with your team name too. Then you can get moving on your fundraising efforts!
