F4LBR Spintern Fundraiser @ Cyclebar
Jul 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Come support the CMCC Interns aka “Spinterns” in their fundraising efforts for the Toronto People With Aids Foundation (PWA). In August, they will be providing treatment to riders along the Friends For Life Bike Rally which is a 6 day, 600km ride from Toronto to Montreal. The F4L Bike Rally is the sustaining fundraiser for the PWA which allows them to provide critical services and support to individuals living with HIV/AIDs in Toronto.

Join us for a great workout for an even greater cause at Cyclebar Leaside, Toronto’s premier indoor cycling studio. No experience needed! They provide the shoes – so don’t bring your own. We also provide towels and water. All you have to do is show up in athletic apparel. There is free underground parking and it is accessible by TTC.

Once we get the link for sign ups we will share it in the event group, registration is first come first serve. In the mean time, please create an account online at:

All funds raised through the participation fee of $20/person will be going directly to the PWA. There are 53 bikes and our goal is to sell out this class to raise over $1000 through this event.
