Spin to Break the Cycle

What if someone told you that an hour of spinning could help stop violence in Chicago ‚Äď would you step up to the bike?

Every child should be free from the fear and influence of gangs, drugs, poverty, and violence. Every child deserves to hope and dream.

On Saturday, April 9th, 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 of fear and invest in hope so all of Chicago’s youth have the opportunity to dream, succeed and survive.

This high-energy spin (indoor cycling) event raises funds to support World Sport Chicago’s programs that are leveraging the transformative power of sport to provide positive role models and guidance for Chicago’s most at-risk youth. Some of the city’s most recognized personalities, fitness instructors and organizations will enhance the excitement of the day in a spin event like none other.  Join the excitement as together we step up to the bike and make an impact.
