The YMCA is hoping to get the wheels of its annual campaign spinning with one of its first fundraisers since re-branding.
They're bringing back the Spin-a-thon, an eight hour marathon on the bikes at both area Y's.
People pay a fee to hop on for an hour, or all eight, for a chance to win a number of prizes.
Everything raised goes to the Y's annual campaign which helps adults and youth have access to vital community programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. "It's a different way to raise money, everyone gets a chance to win prizes, and we do have a lot from the community and since you can dress up to win prizes and we're having different themes, it makes it a little more fun and unique," said Rachel Hendrickson from the Y.
The Spin-a-thon is this Saturday from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. You can sign-up at the members services desk. Registration ends on Wednesday.
