3rd Annual Spin-A-Thon Raises Money for Bikes for Children
October 18, 2014
We have two months to go before Christmas, but a few cyclists are getting a head start on an annual fundraiser.
Cyclist from the Charlottesville Racing Club are hoping to raise a few bucks for the annual toy lift by holding a spin-a-thon.
They set up shop along the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville this morning urging people to donate so that every child that wants a bike gets one this holiday season.
"A couple of years ago the toy lift came up short on bikes and as a bunch of nutty cyclist, we decided that every kid needs a bike regardless of economic background," said cyclist Alan Bewley.
"So we decided to put on a spin a thon to raise money for the toy lift and help bridge the gap."
Last year they raised three thousand dollars to go towards bikes for the toy lift.
