Taking a Spin for Hope at Westboro Tennis & Swim Club

“On Sunday, March 1, the American Cancer Society will host Spin for Hope - a three-hour indoor cycling event that will take place simultaneously at participating health clubs in Massachusetts. Locally, the event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at Westboro Tennis & Swim Club, 35 Chauncy St. Westboro Tennis & Swim Club will also host a survivor breakfast to honor cancer survivors and their caregivers from 8:15 to 8:50 a.m. Everyone is welcome to attend the breakfast, even those not cycling. Free food and refreshments will be served, donated from local vendors such as BJ's Wholesale Club, Edible Arrangements, Dunkin' Donuts and many others. Spin for Hope participants can register as an individual and cycle for the entire three hours, or form a team of two or more people and take turns. Registration fee is $25. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraising individuals. Those interested can also support the event by donating to their favorite cyclist or team, volunteering their time, or by becoming an event sponsor. In 2008, 25 health clubs around Massachusetts participated in Spin for Hope, rasing $247,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society's research, education, advocacy and patient support programs. For more information, to register at a participating health club or to host an event at a local club, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit .”
