Spin4Heroes – Powered by Roche

Spin4Heroes, powered by Roche, is a two-pronged fitness event, promoting cancer prevention and raising funds to support the Indiana cancer community. It is an on-site, indoor relay-style team spinning event, as well as a nine-week remote, individual fitness initiative. Celebrating its 10th year, anyone can participate! Your choice of on-site or remote participation 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.

We are gearing up for the 10th edition of Spin4Heroes on Sunday, March 8, 2020. Click here for all the information you will need to form a team for the on-site spin event or to participate remotely.

Thank you to 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!
