Challenge accepted. In 2011 Mike Cooper, Broker VA,WV, MD and I cycled for a few hours to save the tatas. This Spinning marathon was not only a lot of fun but also a very successful fundraiser for the Susan B. Komen foundation.
In my prior life I was a certified Spinning® instructor and although I now only ride among the crowd vs. upfront, I still very much enjoy a good AMP'd up workout. When the chance presents itself to sweat for a good cause, even better! Sign me up!
This Saturday I will be participating in RIDE of a Life Time at my local Life Time Fitness gym in Columbia, MD. Of course I had to sign up as a challenge rider and will be riding all 4 classes from 8 am until noon.
This cycling event is a fundraiser for the Children's Miracle Network (nationally) and the Johns Hopkins Children Center (locally) as well as the Life Time Foundation. Donations fund critical life-saving treatments, research, vital medical equipment... and a mission "toward a future in which every K-12 student in the United States is nourished with minimally processed and scratch cooked school meals."
If you feel this as much as I do, I challenge you, too, to join me and team Ben's Ruff Riders at LTF Columbia, or a Life Time Fitness near you.
You can also ride outside or participate virtually from home - there's still time to sign up! - or simply make a donation, tax deductible of course.
Sweating for a good cause: RIDE of a Life Time. Challenge accepted!
