December Fundraising Challenge

December 1, 2019

The prize for our December 2019 Fundraising and Referral Challenge is a pair (2) tickets to a Calgary Flames game! The seats are in Section 208 Row 6 for the game against the Minnesota Wild game on January 9, 2020, at 7:00 PM. Valued at $260, this is another great incentive to keep up your fundraising and get your friends involved.

Thanks to this month’s prize sponsor, Calgary Sports & Entertainment Corporation, for providing the tickets and for all their support. (They even sent Ralph The Dog to our Sweaty Sponsor Spin back in October.)

Earning Entries

There are two ways to earn entries into this draw (and you can earn an unlimited number of entries during the month of December):

  • Two (2) entries for each Spinner that you refer and who registers for Spin For Life. When signing up, they’ll be asked to search for a find your name to track who you’ve referred to join us at the event.
  • One (1) entry for every $100 that you raise through your profile for the Canadian Cancer Society. (You don’t have to do anything special to qualify for the draw, just keep fundraising as you have been and we’ll keep track of your entries.)

Also, anyone who registers in the month of December is automatically given one (1) entry into the draw.

We’ll pick the winners on January 1, 2020, and arrange delivery of their tickets then. Good luck, Spinners, and Happy Fundraising!

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!
