On Saturday, March 8, 2020, more than 1,600 riders, including CHOP supporters, employees, families and friends affected by pediatric congenital heart disease, participated in a big workout to save little hearts. During two sessions, teams rode relay-style for a high-energy, heart-pounding and music-filled indoor cycling party, while hearing captivating patient stories. The sessions were led by some of Philadelphia’s leading indoor cycling instructors from SoulCycle, Flywheel Sports, CycleBar, BPM Fitness, Life Time Fitness and Torque.

Proceeds from the fourth annual Philly Spin-In will directly support patient care, treatment and research that benefit children with heart conditions both here in the local community and around the world. The Cardiac Center at CHOP features one of the largest and most accomplished medical teams in the world, with each member specially trained to care for children with congenital heart conditions. Collectively, the Cardiac Center team has revolutionized the way children with congenital and acquired heart conditions are diagnosed, treated and followed into adulthood.

The fourth annual event was featured on numerous media outlets, including 6ABC, NBC10, CBS3 and FOX29.
