Summer 2019 Sponsorships

September 16, 2019

Spin For Life is pleased to welcome three new sponsors who signed up over the summer. Thanks in part to their contributions, every penny donated through our Spinners stays with the Canadian Cancer Society to fund work in one of three key areas: the Alberta Research Fund, Wheels of Hope, or Clinical Trials.

Halliburton Group Canada‘s Vice President, John Gorman, had this to say about sponsoring Spin For Life: “Halliburton Group Canada is proud to be a sponsor and participant in the inaugural Spin for Life campaign, on behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society. We support the CCS through corporate sponsorships as well as the charitable contributions from our individual employees. Biking around the world as a single community is a goal that is worth the effort to achieve. Halliburton is proud to be on the team to support this cause, as cancer has impacted all of our lives in some way.”

Brady Fletcher is not only a Founding Sponsor of Spin For Life, he’s also an integral part of our fundraising committee. We’re so grateful to him for sharing his experience and connections. Plus, he came up with a pretty great team name for his campaign, the “Wheel D Beasts.”

Finally, we’d like to say thanks to TD Bank Group for joining our sponsorship ranks. They are passionate about helping their community and are excited to get their team registered and fundraising soon.

There are still lots more individuals and companies looking to get behind Spin For Life and to help raise as much money as possible for cancer research and care. If that includes you, contact us to find out how you can get involved. Or, you can donate to a Spinner right now and have your money start making a difference within minutes.

Inclusive

Spin For Life values inclusion and removing barriers to entry for participation; any skill level, beginner to pro, is encouraged to join. There’s no need for any special equipment or gear – alongside 180 spin bikes, Spin For Life is equipped with low-impact floor and arm pedal machines. Spinners are in a controlled indoor environment where the risk is low, medical support is always close-at-hand, and the weather won’t affect the experience. Our participants’ physical and fundraising commitments are also designed to be manageable challenges: one hour of sweat with a minimum $1,000 raised for charity.

Impactful

Thanks to our growing list of like-minded sponsors and patrons, 100% of donations stay with the Canadian Cancer Society. With each event, Spin For Life aims to raise a minimum of $1.44 million with new host cities being added every year for a ten year goal of $180 million. Tax receiptable donations can be allocated to any of three categories: Clinical Trials, Wheels of Hope, or the Alberta Cancer Research Fund (which was specially created to be funded by Spin For Life). Even in our first year, we are aiming to break the World Record for most money raised with a static cycling event.

Immersive

Over the course of eight hours, our Spinners will collectively ride the circumference of the world: 40,075 km. Each hour is themed around distinct global landscapes with LED screens, theatre lighting, and mapped projections transporting participants through a beautiful, challenging, and cathartic experience. Emcees and Instructors will lead the music-filled Spin Hours, introducing stories of cancer heroes, researchers, clinicians, and remembrances of those we have lost. All culminating in a world record ceremony and on-site after party when we finish spinning around the globe!
