• Chance For You To Give Back

    Greetings Pedal-On Instructors


    On behalf of Project VisAbility with Sport&Health, we would like to invite you to participate in the
    second annual Sweat for a Vet event on Saturday, November 12th from 9:30AM – 12:30PM (EST)
    via LIVE video link!

    You can host a Sweat for a Vet - -a-thon at your own club location and be a part of the entire program simultaneously.
    Being part of this uplifting event will be a great way to offer something new to your members and to introduce the concept of inclusive fitness in a unique and inspiring way. We will have various athletes on stage, both able bodied and those with various physical disabilities, and we will have speakers who have overcome physical and mental obstacles to fitness and triumphed over them. We will have a screen behind the stage highlighting these amazing athletes in action. We plan to have competitors from the US Paralympics and the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and others who have excelled in their particular sports. There will be additional special guest speakers as well. Another advantage of participating is that the facility that raises the largest amount of money will be awarded a free Johnny
    G Krankcycle® by Matrix!!!!!!!!

    Sweat for a Vet is a 3-hour indoor-cycling, rowing and Kranking® event. This second annual event will build on the success of the first year’s program and will expand the number of locations and overall funds raised to help disabled veterans in local communities. This year’s event will take place on Saturday November 12th, once again at the Tysons Sport&Health club location (main event site) in the Washington, DC area from 9:30AM – 12:30PM (EST).

    Participants will sign up for the event and work towards meeting their individual fundraising targets. The goal is to raise money and purchase equipment for VA hospitals and recreational facilities serving our Wounded Warriors across the USA. Funds raised through this event will benefit disabled American Veterans in a direct and significant way, providing them resources to continue their physical training as well as helping to expand their vocational options.
    Funds raised will be allocated to support facilities and programs in the local areas where events take place.

    We will be video streaming the live event all across the world to various fitness facilities, and we would like to encourage you to host a Sweat for a Vet - -a-thon fundraising event at your facility and join us LIVE on the day of the event. We would like to help support your efforts by providing you with promotional materials and suggested formats for hosting the event. Click Here for more information to help you get started…

      Thanks for telling me about this Rick - a fantastic group. Imagine participating in an event that will help challenged athletes to become fitness instructors!
      I have an interview with former Spinning Master Instructor Debbie Miller, the Director of ProjectVisAbility.org with lots of details.

      Shoot! I wish I had read this sooner because I would have organized it for my gym. We will DEFINITELY be participating next year. We'll still ride this Saturday in honor of our Vets (I'm one) but it won't be official. I will check out the site and get planning for 2012!
