How the Race Works
Spin for Kids is an indoor race on stationary spin bikes. Each team consists of eight cyclists that ride for 20 minutes each. There is a five-minute break between each rider to record mileage and change cyclists.
- Each team consists of eight riders.
- Each team MUST appoint a Team Captain.
- Each team member is required to raise a minimun of $75 in pledges to support the race mission.
- Each rider receives a Spin for Kids t-shirt.
- Prizes are awarded to individuals and teams with the most pledges and highest miles in each division.
- Team Spirit Award goes to the team who exudes the most excitement and energy.
If you are interested in participating in the event, but do not want to ride, plenty of volunteer opportunities are available. We appreciate any help that you are able to provide. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Jessica at 701.780.2538 or email@example.com

Families with children who have special needs often face lifelong medical bills and expenses.
Children grow and change very quickly, and the equipment they need must change with them.
Insurance does not always cover these costs; this is where Spin for Kids comes in. All money raised by Spin for Kids will be dispersed to qualifying families to help them get the equipment and services they need.
If you are interested in applying for funds, please review the Spin for Kids Funds Application Form.
