Spin Your Wheels 2017
EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2017
On April 1, 2017 from 9am-4pm, we will be hosting the 3rd Spin Your Wheels fundraiser at Axle Fitness, located at 1913 Fox Chapel Rd. in Fox Chapel. Riders choose anywhere from 1-4 hours of spin classes. There will be a basket auction, refreshments, food, a DJ and MUCH more. There is something for everyone: non-cyclists can choose from an hour of Strong by Zumba, Bootcamp and Yoga. There will be a fun fitness class for the younger exercisers and arrangements for childcare. People with all athletic ability are welcome and encouraged to participate. We are thrilled to announce NEW FOR 2017: Mindful Movement, a yoga/wellness class designed specifically for individuals with special needs!
We organized this fundraiser because disabilities affect all of us. Jennifer’s 14 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 sees this as a perfect opportunity to donate the use of her gym to support this amazing cause.
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. Jennifer’s son has participated in this program for several years and LOVES it! 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 about RHWPA 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 1, 2017, 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. Checks should be made out to “RHWPA” and mailed to the above address.
