SPINNER ACHIEVEMENTS

Tammy Block is one the Spinners at the inaugural Spin For Life event on November 21, 2020! Each participant (once they reach a fundraising minimum of $250) gets one hour on a bike while we collectively attempt to Spin around the world in just one day. All donations go to support the Canadian Cancer Society. You can help by donating to her campaign and/or cheering her on at the event.

Why I'm Spinning:

Welcome to my Personal fundraising page for Spin for Life!

I lost my dad 9 years ago to pancreatic cancer and it was devastating. This is just one other way for me to honor him and try to help others who are experiencing the same. I know everyone is always giving, all for great causes especially during a pandemic, which is why your generosity means so much to me personally.

Spinning is one of the best low-impact exercises, which is why I have decided to ride. I will be training and fundraising throughout the year to help conquer cancer.

Please contribute to this history-making event with a donation. Funds raised in the inaugural Spin for Life, will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at the Canadian Cancer Society, a leader in cancer research and treatment.

Thank you in advance for your help!

About this team:

Strength in numbers has never mattered more than in the fight against cancer. Cancer spares no one. It affects parents, partners, siblings, friends and many more. But we refuse to back down to this disease. Together, we can amplify our impact in both Riders and donations to conquer cancer in our lifetime.

That’s why we’re teaming up for Spin for Life benefiting the Canadian Cancer Society! With the support of volunteers and donors, they improve and save lives by taking a comprehensive approach to their work against more than 100 types of cancer. CCS funds research, provides services to those living with cancer, advocates on important cancer-related issues and educates and empowers people to make healthy choices.

We want thousands of people to jump on stationary bikes with us on April 4, 2020 and rack up all the kilometres it takes to travel the globe (40,075 km) in 8 hours. Join US in our 1st year to bike around the world, indoors! No need for a road bike, or weather dependent, collectively, as a community, in one day, for cancer research and care. Together, we will make a difference!

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!
