Spin to Break the Cycle is a high-energy, indoor cycling event that raises funds to support World Sport Chicago’s programs that are having an impact on reducing violence and creating opportunity in Chicago. On Saturday, April 18th the event will take over three floors in the House of Blues – creating an emotionally and physically empowering experience.

Where: House of Blues Chicago {329 N Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60654}

When: Saturday, April 18

TIME: 7 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. (with a new workout session at the top of every hour)
Doors open at 7 a.m. the first spin session starts at 8 a.m. with a new workout session at the top of every hour. The last session starts at 4 p.m.

Cost: Spin Participant Spot is a $30 registration fee per person with a $300 fundraising minimum per hour of spinning (option to spin for one hour or go the distance and spin for three hours)

Details: The benefit is a high-energy, indoor cycling event that challenges participants to get active to support programs that have proven to have an impact on building stronger safer communities across Chicago. On April 18th, nearly 1,000 Chicagoans including some surprise guest appearances of Chicago celebrities will jump on a bike for an entry-level workout with one goal – breaking the cycle of violence in Chicago.

This event takes working out to a whole new level. Picture this: 100 spin bikes fill the House of Blues concert hall and top spin instructors from Fitness Formula Clubs lead and encourage participants during 9 hours of energetic spin workouts. Bike wheels will not be the only things spinning…a live dj will be playing high-energy playlists.

Individuals and teams are invited to take the challenge to pedal their way to raise funds for the important work of World Sport Chicago; choosing to do a one-hour workout or go the distance and spin for three hours! World Sport Chicago will provide the tools, tips and your own online fundraising page to collect donations.

Besides a rewarding workout, participants will enjoy prizes, a stylish event shirt, swag bag and more. Spin to Break the Cycle takes over all three floors of the House of Blues, providing a memorable experience both on and off the bike.

Highlights of the off the bike activities include:
THE REJUVENATION provides a dedicated area of TLC and relaxation for the participants following the ride featuring free massage, pampering and more in the exclusive Foundation Room.
THE RECEPTION brings the participants and crew (general attendees) together to celebrate. This area takes the experience to yet another level featuring a complimentary drink and appetizer buffet, spectator lounges, a silent auction and more.
THE REWARDS gives participants a way to go beyond the satisfaction of making a difference and provides an opportunity to earn exciting rewards like airline certificates, sports tickets and exclusive experiences.

“Spin to Break the Cycle is a unique and rewarding event that allows participants to engage in an exciting activity with friends, family and colleagues, while supporting the extremely worthy causes of combating violence in Chicago and building stronger, safer communities,” said Kam Buckner, World Sport Chicago’s Executive Director.

Every dollar raised from the event will go directly to programs that are having an impact on both helping our youth pursue their dreams and building stronger, safer communities across Chicago. For example, a research study by the University of Chicago–Crime Lab proved that participation in Becoming a Man – Sports Edition (BAM – Sports), a World Sport Chicago and Youth Guidance program reduced violent crime arrests by 44%, reduced weapons crime and vandalism by 36%, increased future graduation rates by 10-23%.
