Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) second annual Philly Spin-In raised more than $416,000 to benefit the Cardiac Center.
On Sunday, March 11, 2018, more than 900 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 held at the Ruth and Tristram Colket, Jr. Translational Research Building on CHOP’s Raymond G. Perelman Campus. The two four-hour sessions were led by some of Philadelphia’s most well-known indoor cycling instructors from SoulCycle, Flywheel Sports, CycleBar, BPM Fitness, Body Cycle and Life Time Athletic.
Handling more than 30,000 outpatient visits and 1,800 inpatient admissions annually, CHOP’s Cardiac Center 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 team has revolutionized the way children with congenital and acquired heart conditions are diagnosed, treated and followed into adulthood.
Even though the event is over, people can still donate.
The event was featured on CBS3 and 6ABC.
