Pedal to End Cancer at SAC

February 19th, 2014
by Joanne Casazza

The American Cancer Society’s Pedal to End Cancer is an indoor cycling fundraising event to benefit the Society’s programs of cancer research, education, advocacy, and services.

About one-third of the cancer deaths that occur in the U.S. each year are due to nutrition and physical activity factors. By quitting or avoiding smoking, maintaining a healthy weight through proper diet and regular physical activity and getting the appropriate prevent care, Americans can significantly reduce their risk of cancer.

Event Date/Locations

Pedal to End Cancer 2014 will be held on Sunday, March 2, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. noon in our downstairs studio

Event History

Since Spin for Hope started in New England in 2005, more than $2.5 million has been raised for the fight against cancer. What started with 6 clubs raising $100,000 has grown to over 60 clubs raising nearly $400,000 last year.

2014 will be our second year under the event name Pedal to End Cancer and the 10th year using our pedals to fight cancer!

Other than the name of the event, nothing has changed. Pedal to End Cancer continues to be the fun, exciting event you remember. And, most importantly, the funds raised will continue to support the life-saving mission of the American Cancer Society.

Registration and Event Information

Registration:

Participants register online and pay the $25 non-refundable registration fee (not included in the recommended fundraising minimum) to participate. All participants in the American Cancer Society’s Pedal to End Cancer event need to register as either a team captain or team member, even if planning on spinning the full three hours individually. This is the only way to accurately track the need for bikes at each club.

Participants may register as a one person team and reserve their own bike. Individuals registering to cycle the entire three hours should strive to raise at least $300.

Participants can also choose to share a bike with up to 5 others and split up the three hours. Those registering to share a bike should aim to raise $100 each. A non-refundable $25 registration fee applies per participant.
