YMCA Spin-A-Thon For Strong Communities 2021

Interested in getting active for a cause? Our next Spin-A-Thon is scheduled for October 23, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

If you are interested in being a participant or a sponsor, or if you just have some questions about the Spin-A-Thon, please contact Shawna White at shawna.white@ymcafredericton.org.

The YMCA Spin-A-Thon is an annual fundraising event to raise money for the YMCA’s Strong Community Campaign. In 2019, this event raised close to $15 000 and in 2021 we hope to surpass this goal.

It’s no secret that the reason the Spin-A-Thon is such a success is due to strong community involvement. Generous corporate or individual sponsors step up to the plate to sponsor a stationary bicycle at the Bronze, Silver or Gold levels. Next, a team from the company, or a team of individual volunteers agree to keep those bikes in motion for 4 continuous hours. Seems tough, but pumping music, prizes every 30 minutes, water and healthy snacks, with a lot of spirit thrown in for good measure keeps everyone motivated for this fun filled event. Consider registering your team today!

As in past years, if you choose to sponsor but can’t send a team, we have volunteers who will keep your bike spinning for you!
