Spin4Heroes

Powered by SBC Wealth Management

Spin4Heroes, powered by SBC Wealth Management, is an indoor relay-style team spinning event. A team captain registers the team, recruits the team members, and then together they raise funds for the Heroes Foundation. Anyone can participate in Spin4Heroes! It doesn’t matter if you have never been on a bike, take weekly spin classes, or if you compete on the local/regional cycling circuit. You can work out as hard (or as little) as you want! Remember, the bike is just the vehicle to achieve our end-goal — to provide meaningful support to cancer patients, education to promote cancer prevention and resources to advance research for a cure.

The 2018 Spin4Heroes took place on Sunday, March 11th, at the Community Healthplex! 54 teams participated in this fun event, raising over $75,000!


Wine Tasting With Peachey

The 2018 Wine Tasting With Peachey event was held on Monday, June 25th at Peace Water Winery in Carmel, IN.  This year’s event was a sell-out, had lots of energy, and raised $8,000. Many thanks to everyone who made Wine Tasting With Peachey such a special evening. We will get busy putting the money raised toward important breast cancer research in Indiana!
