Grand Forks, ND - Altru Health System will host Spin for Kids on April 16, 2016 at Red River High School. Registration opens February 24, 2016 at 7 a.m. at Altru’s Medical Fitness Center (1300 S. Columbia Road, inside Altru Rehabilitation Center).

Spin for Kids is an indoor race on stationary bikes. Each team consists of eight riders that ride for 20 minutes each. The teams’ pledges provide supportive programs, services and equipment to children with special needs within our community and region. Bikes fill fast; teams are encouraged to register as soon as possible. All proceeds will be disbursed to qualifying families to help ease the struggles they face every day and help children live the fullest life possible. Last year, Spin for Kids raised over $70,000.

To date, over $298,000 has been raised by Spin for Kids since the first event back in 2010. “New this year, we are excited to add a Kid’s Team division. If a young person can reach the pedals, they can ride in Spin for Kids,” said Spin for Kids supervisor and supervisor for Altru’s Physical Medicine and Therapy Services, Jessica Strand.
