Spin for the Kids

Thirty bikes. Three classes. One goal: generate some serious sweat in support of some serious good. We’re amped to announce the hottest (literally) way to say ‘Sayonara’ to 2013 and welcome in 2014, and all of it in the name of giving. December 31, 2013 – we’re raising our heart rates to raise funds and awareness for the CKNW Orphan’s Fund. Get in while you can – you won’t want to miss this. The last time a similar event took place at Cadence, it involved three dudes taking on a two-wheeled adventure with one shared vision: to raise awareness around men’s health issues and a little cause called Movember. The Cadence community came together to support Kevin, Jordan and Ben, the boys of the Moustache Ride Canada, in their mission to raise $100,000 towards the Movember Foundation. It was a one-ride event close to the start of their mission across Canada and a first for Cadence. All proceeds raised from the ride were contributed to the Mo’Ride team and, most importantly, the sense of community that the ride inspired was palpable.

This time, it’s all about spinning for the kids.

The mission of the CKNW Orphan’s Fund is simple:

The CKNW Orphans’ Fund are dedicated to enhancing the lives of children with physical, mental and social challenges living in BC Communities.

This awesome organization provides grants to low income households who have a child that requires something extra for their development – such as therapies, specialized medical equipment, educational bursaries, camperships and much more. An added bonus: their Executive Director, Jen Schaeffers, is a regular at Cadence.

Vancouver’s communities come together to support one another on the regular. We live in a city where volunteerism is thriving, where there are groups focused on creating positive change and where people are intrinsically inspired to contribute. Couple that with one of the healthiest cities in the nation and we’ve got a model for creating a contribution through a value added experience – sweat. The rides will be filled with tons of fun, a dash of passion and a whole lot of intention.

Join us on December 31st and spin for the kids. We’ve got three classes scheduled: 7:15am with Jaci, 9:30am with Natasha and 12:00pm with Mike.  There’s 30 bikes available for each class and it’s our goal to fill each seat. It’s the last sweat of the 2013 season team, so let’s make it count.

Sign up online  and do so quickly – seats will go fast.  It’s a special event, so these classes have a minimum donation of $25 for your seat, payable online when you sign up. All funds raised will be contributed to the charity and extra donations are encouraged (payable via cash, credit or debit) at the studio on the 31st. Sign up for one, two….maybe all three classes? Can't wait to see you on the 31st, friends!
