Those who participate (at least 30 minute segments) can make a donation of their choice. A minimum $10 donation enters a raffle for an oceanfront beach house weekend and $25 – another raffle for a full week. Only 8 bikes are available for the Spin-A-Thon for all time segments and participants may sign up for as long as they want to rise.  All instructors are also donating their time and every penny collected goes to directly to the MS Foundation.

“We are truly grateful for the opportunity to give back to this worthy cause, says Linda Carlsen, Wellness Coordinator at Surf City Parks & Recreation. “Creating awareness to join the movement to defeat Multiple Sclerosis is especially important.”
