Thank You to Our 2019 Spin “Heroes”

On Sunday, March 10, participants jumped on spin bikes at Spin4Heroes, powered by Roche, to pedal for four hours and support this crucial Heroes Foundation fundraising event. Over $85,000 was raised — pushing us beyond our fundraising goal and generating funding that will provide support to cancer patients, education to promote cancer prevention and resources to advance research for a cure!

For the first time in its 9-year history, Spin4Heroes offered cancer fighters a way to participate remotely. In contrast to our traditional 4-person spin teams, this 1-person registration created a way for individual cancer fighters of all ages, near and far, to be active for the Indiana cancer community. Individuals simply signed up, raised money to support their efforts, and got active! The bike, running shoes, or yoga mat was just the vehicle to achieve our end-goal! Look for more info to come soon on the launch of the 2020 Spin4Heroes remote program.

Congratulations to the 2019 Spin4Heroes Award Winners:
  • First Place Fundraising Team – Audrey’s Army
  • Second Place Fundraising Team – Women’s Racing Project
  • Top Mileage Team (Women) – Women’s Racing Project
  • Top Mileage Team (Men) – Audrey’s Army
  • Top Mileage Team (Co-ed) – Roche COLT
  • Spirit Award – CX Girls

We could not stage an event of this scope without the generous support of our sponsors:
