Get Moving for a Cause with Cycle for Hope

 Toss aside the sedentary lifestyle that usually accompanies this season’s arctic temperatures and get those endorphins flowing at the Cycle for Hope spinning fundraiser. The seventh annual indoor exercise event, which runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 5, will take place at the Penfield Racquet and Fitness Club and other participating fitness centers.

Last year’s event raised $29,000 for Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center and Camp Good Days and Special Times. This year, the two non-profit organizations are hoping Cycle for Hope’s a new interactive registration page, available at, will help participants top last year’s total.
