“Ohio veterans have given so much for us. We are excited to spearhead this worthy cause and hope that it will become an annual fundraiser for Ohio veterans,” said Jerry Lynch, co-owner of LifeCenter Plus. “We challenge all of the fitness and recreation centers in Northeast Ohio to participate with us in this Pedal for Heroes event that supports local veterans and recognizes those who have given their lives.”
Fitness centers are invited to participate in this event and to challenge their members to form teams to cycle on stationery bicycles for 276 minutes on Sunday, February 24. Teams are already forming and more clubs are asking to participate.
Proceeds from each participating center will be used by Pedal For Heroes, a 501(c)(3) organization, to provide services to local veterans. Last year, over $16,000 was raised by 11 participating fitness facilities in Northeast Ohio.
LifeCenter Plus is providing participating fitness centers with planning materials as well as an educational presentation to show during the event. LifeCenter Plus will include participating fitness centers in the media marketing communication.
Fitness center directors interested in learning more about how to get involved should contact Fitness Director, Jessica Shenker at LifeCenter Plus in Hudson, Ohio at 330-655-2377, ext. 138. The deadline for fitness centers to sign up for Pedals For Heroes is February 1, 2012.
