Spin for a Cause

It's 10:30 Saturday morning and I can hear Bon Jovi blaring from around the block. But it's not a weekend barbecue - it's a fundraiser at my gym, Fitness Works, where they are hosting "Spin for a Cause" to raise funds to support the American Lung Association. Considering many of the members participating rode from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm - they deserve a lot of credit for giving not only their time, but their energy and determination!

All proceeds from the event are going to sponsor another ambitious and caring South Philadelphia resident - Justine Dobies - who is participating in The Big Ride Across America where she'll be pedaling 3,300 miles over 48 days from Seattle to Washington D.C. Justine is still working to reach her goal of raising $6,000 - so if you would like to help out donations can be made here.
