Do Good, Have Fun, Feel Great!

boston strong

 

 

Today’s historic Boston Marathon, in which so many runners will be pushing themselves those 26.2 miles for others –  for those injured or killed in last year’s devastating attack at the finish line, for friends and family who cannot run, and for so many other causes that matter – has us thinking about doing good through fitness. 

 

 

Our community is extremely important to us, and you are part of that community! If you’re a Spynergy rider and are fundraising for a cause that you care about, we can help:

 

  • We will provide the studio (at a mutually-decided time) free of charge
  • We will provide one of our amazing instructors free of charge
  • You are responsible for filling our 48 bikes with your friends and supporters
  • You’ll decide what the minimum donation will be
  • 100% of the money you raise will go to the cause

 

How cool is that?  Do good, have fun, feel great. 

 

Talk with us about your plans at info@spynergywellesley.com.

 

Spynergy has provided indoor cycling classes with great instructors, great music and great fun since 2005 to our neighbors in Wellesley, Needham, Dover, Natick, Weston, Wayland, Sherborn, Chestnut Hill, Newton and other Boston-area communities.  Join us for a great class this week!

Cycle for Survival....Spinning Event for Cancer Research

 

Spynergy rider Kristin Simonini of Needham is participating in Cycle for Survival this winter --- an event to raise money for rare cancer research. The indoor ride will take place at Equinox in Boston on February 9, and Simonini has asked Spynergy to help raise awareness.

Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised over $31 million for cancer research, it is funded by the Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center, which covers the overhead costs allowing 100 percent of the proceeds to go directly to research facilities.

Simonini got involved with the event after her husband was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma in 2008 and she became aware of the lack of research on that type of cancer.  He passed away in 2012.

While individually these cancers are “rare,” when totaled together they make up more than 50 percent of the diagnosed cancers in the United States, according to the Cycle for Survival site.  Simonini is hoping more teams will decide to take part in the Boston event.

“Last year was the first year that Cycle For Survival came to Boston and I’d love to see more teams register and participate and raise funds,” she said. “It is a really high energy and emotionally rewarding day.”

Simonini added, “While sadly there is nothing that can be done for my family, I can at least do my part to ensure other families have more answers and ultimately, a cure.”
