Registration is now open for Pedal with a Purpose, an annual fundraising event for the Riverfront YMCA in Cuyahoga Falls. The indoor cycling event, which helps fund the YMCA’s annual campaign, will take place March 7 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Riverfront location.
Funds raised from this event will go toward helping families and children who need assistance covering programming costs.
Participants who sign up are encouraged to collect $20 for each half-hour they cycle, with 100 percent of donations going toward the annual campaign. Certified instructors will be on-hand with upbeat music to inspire cyclists and monitor activity.
In addition to the cycling event, the family-centric day also will include a silent auction, inflatables, raffle prizes, face painting and a bake sale. Individuals and businesses can participate by underwriting a bicycle, by donating a gift basket or raffle prize, or by volunteering to help the day of the event.
