Gear Up

Posted April 5 2012


Join MHG Insurance Brokers and the Marine Industry Cares Foundation as they ‘gear up’ for their 4th annual Spin-A-Thon on Friday, April 20th at Esplanade Park in Downtown Fort Lauderdale!   

 

Proceeds raised benefit Kids in Distress (KID), a leading force in the prevention of child abuse and neglect and Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center which promotes health and well-being of children and youth with special healthcare needs. 

The Spin-A-Thon is a fun endurance challenge and a great team-building. Take part in the action by organizing or joining a Spin-Bike Team.  Team registration is $300 to secure your spot. Upon registration, each participating company or group will assemble their own team of enthusiastic cyclists. The individual team members then are challenged to seek additional support and donations to help our charitable beneficiaries. 

Teams must keep their bikes moving for 360 minutes and are welcome to have as many riders as they wish during the event. The fun begins on Friday, April 20th at noon with registration. The spinning event will take place, rain or shine at the Esplanade Park in Downtown Fort Lauderdale from 1-7pm. We will finish the night with a networking and thank you party from 5-9pm.  

If you can ride a stationary bicycle then you can spin with us!  Marine Industry Cares Foundation is also looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are looking for a way to give back to their community while having fun.

MHG is one of the founding companies of Marine Industry Cares Foundation and is excited to see how the Spin-A-Thon has grown over the past four years.  The Spin-A-Thon started in 2009 and raised $30,000 for Kids in Distress.  The next year they doubled their donation as the 2010 Spin-A-Thon raised $60,000 for Kids in Distress.  The 2011 Spin-A-Thon raised over $100,000 for Kids in Distress. This year we have 50 individuals registered so far and over 50 teams! Team Insurance Peddlers have raised $2,150 to date, 125% of their goal of $2,000!  

It is not too late to start your own team, join a team or sponsor a rider and help make this Spin-A-Thon, the best one yet. The Marine Industry Cares Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises money and awareness for local charities. They aim to provide a brighter future for children and families in need by uniting the generous efforts of the marine industry community. 

The MICF also serves as a model for shipping industries in other cities to use and implement where they live—bringing the maritime and local communities together in cities around the world. So "gear up", invite your friends, family or co-workers and join the ride to give kids in your community a brighter and healthier future!
