Spin4Heroes – Powered by Roche

Spin4Heroes, powered by Roche, is an indoor relay-style team spinning event. Anyone can participate! 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. 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.

Goals are made to be broken. Thank you for everyone who participated, volunteered, donated, sponsored and otherwise supported the 2019 Spin4Heroes event. With your help we were truly able to make a meaningful impact on the Indiana cancer community raising over $85,000!
