On April 7, 2018 from 900am-400pm, we will be teaming up with The Sweat Shoppe fitness studio to host the 4th Spin Your Wheels fundraiser at The Aspinwall Riverfront Park, located at 285 River Ave., Aspinwall, PA 15215. We are taking the fitness party outdoors this year where riders can choose anywhere from 1-4 hours of spin classes and/or participate in at least 8 different group fitness classes. There will be a basket auction, refreshments, food, a DJ and MUCH more. There is something for everyone: non-cyclists can choose from any of our 30-45 minute classes (discounts for signing up for multiple classes): Kick It, HIIT Bootcamp, Pound, Piyo, Zumba, Yoga and more! There will be a fun fitness class for the younger exercisers and the park will be open for them to play. People with all athletic ability are welcome and encouraged to participate. We are thrilled to announce BACK FOR 2018: Mindful Movement, a yoga/wellness class designed specifically for individuals with special needs, and NEW FOR 2018: Sensory therapy support training for families with children with special needs provided by Open Up PGH!
We organized this fundraiser because disabilities affect all of us. Jennifer’s 15 year old son (Katherine’s godson), Luke has autism as well as cerebral palsy. Katherine is an elementary school special education teacher and works with children with various intellectual and physical disabilities every day. Andrea has close friends who have children with disabilities and has been an integral part of the behind the scenes organization of the first three Spin Your Wheels fundraisers. Rory owns The Sweat Shoppe and is graciously providing the necessary equipment for the event. She has a long history of volunteer work and encourages her two daughters to actively volunteer within the special needs community as well.
Our sole beneficiary is Riding for the Handicapped of Western PA (RHWPA). RHWPA is a 501-C3 non-profit organization that provides therapeutic horseback riding for children with intellectual and/or physical disabilities in the Pittsburgh area. Approximately 75% of their riders are children living with autism but children with all disabilities are welcome. It is believed the rhythmical gait of a horse acts to move the rider's pelvis in the same rotation and side-to-side movement that occurs when walking. The horse's adjustable gait promotes riders to constantly adjust to encourage pelvic motion while improving strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, posture, and mobility. You can learn more by visiting www.RHWPA.org.
We sincerely hope that you will be a part of our fundraiser. If you are not able to join us on APRIL 7, 2018, please consider contributing in another way by volunteering, providing a gift basket for our auction, sponsoring a bike, donating a gift card or an item from your store for a prize or a monetary donation.
