Philly Spin-In Raises More than $570,000 for Cardiac Center at CHOP

Published on

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) third annual Philly Spin-In raised more than $570,000 to benefit the Cardiac Center.

On Saturday, March 9, 2019, and Sunday, March 10, 2019, more than 1,500 riders, including CHOP supporters, employees, families and friends affected by pediatric congenital heart disease, participated in a big workout to help little hearts. Teams rode relay-style, sharing a bike, for a high-energy, heart-pounding and music-filled indoor cycling party with captivating patient stories.  The event was held at the Ruth and Tristram Colket, Jr. Translational Research Building on CHOP’s Raymond G. Perelman Campus. The two-day sessions were led by some of Philadelphia’s most well-known indoor cycling instructors from SoulCycle, Flywheel Sports, CycleBar, BPM Fitness, Life Time Fitness, Soulbeat Studio and Torque.

Proceeds from the third annual Philly Spin-In will directly support patient care, treatment and research, like the projects that were recognized at our Cardiac Center’s Innovation Day in November 2018, 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 team has revolutionized the way children with congenital and acquired heart conditions are diagnosed, treated and followed into adulthood. 

The third-annual event was featured on numerous media outlets, including CBS36ABC and KYW Newsradio.
