Thanks to support from participants, sponsors and volunteers, Spin4Heroes on March 11, 2017, raised a total of $64,000 to back the Heroes Foundation’s cancer fundraiser and initiatives around support, research and prevention. Held for the first time at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, 65 teams of four people each took to the turf where the Indianapolis Colts practice. A surprise to all, Coach Chuck Pagano (pictured) stopped by to encourage the crowd, remind them of the reason behind the spinning, and ride alongside Spin4Heroes fundraisers.
Heroes young and older spun for four hours to show their support of the cancer community, get in a great workout and have fun. They jumped in the bounce house, took photos with a giant Colts inflatable and tossed corn hole bags. Many tested their reaction time on The Batak game (used by Indy 500 drivers), pushed through the Fitlivin obstacle course and ran around on the practice field!
“There was great energy the entire day. We are genuinely psyched for next year, and already have new ideas to make the eighth annual Spin4Heroes event in 2018 even better,” said Vince Todd, Jr., Chairman and Co-Founder of the Heroes Foundation.
