Details: Ready to Pedal? On Saturday, April 8th, Spin to Break the Cycle takes over the iconic House of Blues Chicago uniting individuals, corporations and the greater Chicago community as together we help break the cycle and invest in the future of Chicago’s youth – creating stronger, safer, and healthier communities.

TOGETHER WE RIDE to the beat of a DJ’s high-energy music with some of Chicago’s best instructors leading and encouraging participants through every move of an entry-level 40 minute spin (indoor-cycling) workout.
·TOGETHER WE REFRESH after the workout and enjoy complimentary massage, pampering and more in the exclusive Foundation Room.
·TOGETHER WE CELEBRATE the change we are creating and the people who are making that change possible. This special reception features an appetizer buffet, complimentary drinks, games, drawings, a swag bag and more.
Spin to Break the Cycle sponsors and participants take part in more than a memorable fitness event – they join together to make a difference:
Daily the presence and pressures of violence, divide, and poverty impact the health and wellness of our communities and our youth. The perceptions of what is possible are impacted by current circumstances. The joy of today and hope for the future are constrained. This does not need to be our city’s story, we are one Chicago and together we can break the cycle and invest in the future of Chicago’s youth – creating stronger, safer, and healthier communities.
Formed in 2007 as the non-profit legacy organization of Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, World Sport Chicago has a deeply rooted understanding of the way sport and play can help meet these challenges head on.
SPORT AND PLAY ARE:
– Proven tools for the physical, cognitive, and social development of youth.
– A catalyst for bringing people together, creating understanding, and promoting civic engagement (leadership, community surveillance, volunteerism, empowerment and ownership of their future).
World Sport Chicago sees every child’s and every community’s potential and has witnessed first-hand the way sport and play can help unlock that potential. In stepping up to the bike, Spin to Break the Cycle participants are helping ensure ALL of Chicago’s youth and ALL of Chicago’s communities have access to the power of sport and play. We are stronger together and together we can make a difference.
“Spin to Break the Cycle is a tremendous opportunity to support the work that World Sport Chicago is doing to increase access to sports to young men and women in Chicago’s most under-resourced communities. We continue to be committed to this work because we believe inherently in the power that sport has to strengthen our youth and therefore our neighborhoods and our city. Spin to Break the Cycle is proof that when we work in unison, we are able to tear down barriers and reach new heights, because we are undoubtedly stronger together,” said Kam Buckner, World Sport Chicago’s Executive Director.
This major fundraiser event would not be possible without the support of sponsors RSG (Ryan Specialty Group), Ariel Investments, bKL Architecture, Cushman & Wakefield, Magellan Development Group LLC, the edgewater funds, Votorantim Cimentos, Prairie Material, Fitness Formula Clubs and NBC Chicago.
