ACTivism: Spinning Nation

If you like to bike but can't fit the seven day AIDS Life Cycle into your schedule, there is a new spin on donating to charity. You don't have to take it to the streets to fundraise physically – you can sweat it out in spin class on a stationary bike in a room with fans.

On June 28, Spinning Nation will take over 500 registered spinning facilities to raise funds to fight cancer and AIDS. Registered riders will spin in four consecutive one-hour classes. You need to raise $250 to participate and can register through Check this list of participating sports clubs to see if your gym is involved. The funds raised will benefit Athletes for a Cure, AIDS Research Alliance and Cancer Schmancer.

For more information on registering or making donations, visit Spinning Nation.

This is a sweet option for folks that can't devote a lot of time and money to a lengthy riding event.

I'm doing my 4th AIDS/Lifecycle ride in two weeks! I will also be participating in this event - thanks for writing about both!

Thank you!! I'm totally signing up at the fitness center in my city! I LOVE spinning and always hate that I can't do anything like the marathons b/c I'm just not able to do it. Spinning is so different than running or regular cycling, but I can do it and help out at the same time! Amazing, I said something like this a while back, thinking how great it would be if they could incorporate spinning in with marathons and donations/assistance lol.
