American Association for Cancer Research
Spintensity 200 Celebrity Instructor
November 5, 2016
A one-day Spinning fundraiser at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museaum, featuring 200-minute sessions of team relay-style spin classes on stationary bikes. There will be three 200-minutes spinning sessions (9AM-12PM), 1PM-4PM, and 5PM-8PM). Funds raised from the event will go to the AACR to fund ground-breaking canser resarch.
Over the years, we have embarked on a number of worthy causes that have not only empowered us as a group but educated us along the way. This year, I hope you will join me as we tackle one of the most indiscriminate causes of death in the US and especially among minorities – CANCER. I am proud to announce that I have been chosen as one of the celebrity instructors for the debut of Spintensity 200 this year courtesy of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and its presenting sponsor Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center.
The AACR is the oldest and largest cancer research organization in the world, and funds scientists and physicians for groundbreaking cancer research for all 200 types of childhood and adult cancers in 104 different countries. It aims to find a cure for cancer through research, education, communication and collaboration. Its newest endurance event, Spintensity 200, is a one-day spin-a-thon where teams of 5-10 people take turns relaying on and off a stationary bike for 200 minutes to raise funds for cancer research. This revolutionary spinning event will feature state-of-the-art stationary bikes, instructors, DJs, music, food, and thousands of people all championing the cause of ‘finding a cure for cancer’.
I am looking for one hundred motivated Temples In Shape leaders to serve as Team Captains for Spintensity 200 teams. You will spearhead a team of 5 to 10 people who will be critical in bringing awareness to the ugly disease known as cancer and championing the cause. In the upcoming months leading up to the day of the event (November 5, 2016), we will collectively participate in competitive fundraising that helps bring light to the need for cancer research as well as spark conversation on the disparities among minorities when it comes to cancer diagnoses and survival rates. We will host a number of events leading up to the big day, all in the spirit of raising awareness. On the day of the event, our teams along with our family and friends will gather for Spintensity 200 and celebrate afterwards.
