The Downtown YMCA’s Spin-O-Thon raised $35,918

Downtown YMCA - March 22 2016

Many thanks to our 70 spinning enthusiasts who pedalled two hours together for the 8th edition of the Downtown YMCA’s Spin-O-Thon on March 12.

Thanks to their generosity and CN’s generous contribution of $25,000, the 2016 Spin-O-Thon raised $35,918, which will give kids, young people and families in our community more opportunities to be active, learn and make new friends.

We would also like to thank our honorary president Stephen Covey, Chief of Police and Chief Security Officer for CN, and our sponsors, Technogym, Tangerine and Tripleaction.

Finally, we are very grateful to our employees and volunteers, particularly spinning instructor and professional triathlete Jean-Luc Méjane, without whom the event would not have been possible, and the École de percussions Métissages, whose driving rhythms kept our athletes going strong.
