VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. (WIAT) — One Vestavia Hills health club is using fitness to help fund the fight against childhood cancer.
The four-hour indoor cycling event kicks off at 8 a.m. Saturday. Participants can ride for one to four hours.
Lara Donnelly, assistant group fitness manager at the club, said it’s an all-around good way to make a difference.
“Everybody comes in, they’re in a great mood, they know they’re doing something good for a great cause,” Donnelly said. “We’re sweatin’, we’re happy, the music is pumpin’. It’s like a party, really.”
Since 2016, “Ride for a Reason” has raised more than $4 million across the country to fight childhood cancer.
The Vestavia Hills location originally set a goal of raising $13,000, but they have already surpassed it. Now, they have set a new goal of raising $20,000.
