THE STORY: Spin for Kids is an annual indoor cycling event that is used to raise awareness for children with disabilities and special needs. Families with children who have special needs often face lifelong medical bills and expenses. Insurance does not always cover these costs; this is where Spin for Kids comes in. All money raised by Spin for Kids will be dispersed to qualifying families to help them get the equipment and services they need. Each year there are two honorary captains for the event. This year's honorary captains are Ethan Peterson and Kennedy Byfuglien. Ethan was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type IV and Dwarfism which causes him to have brittle bones which break easily. Kennedy was diagnosed with epilepsy, but she does not let it keep her down! Each team member (cyclist) must raise money for their respective team. Last year, an individual raised $6,400 on his own; I would like to surpass that amount this year. With the help of everybody's generous donations, I think this year's Spin for Kids could be the best yet!
