The Charlottesville Triathlon Club held it's third annual Spin-A-Thon on Saturday.
It was at the Downtown ACAC to raise money for the disease ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Over four hundred people die a day from the disease.
It attacks the brain and spinal cord of its victims, usually leaving them with slurred speech and loss of the use of their limbs.
“We do triathlon typically, so in the winter time we do a lot of spinning like this. So seems kind of like a natural thing to do on the weekends anyway. Come out and get a good workout done and raise a little bit of money for a great charity,” said Tre’ Harris, with CTC.
