5 years ago, 17 people made it their mission to support the Y Strong Kids Campaign – the small group cycled in shifts, for an entire day, in the lobby of the Taggart family Y.  It is hard to believe how much the Y Cycle for Strong Kids has grown since that inaugural event.

This year a small but mighty committee stepped forward to assist in planning what was our must successful ride to day.  

On Sunday, April 8th, the cycle room doors opened at 9 am and 95 cyclers, fundraisers, and fitness enthusiasts alike found their seat for the next two hours. The music was pumping and the temperature was rising - in conjunction with our dedicated sponsors: Dilfo HVAC, PBC Group, Regional Group of Companies, Pool works, Lightenco, and Ken Guarisco with Carleton Financial Services, riders raised a phenomenal $65,000 that will go to providing kids with the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive through a Y programs like camp and swimming lessons, to safe childcare and leadership development courses.

Thank you to all of our cycle instructors, riders, ride supporters, and sponsors – we look forward to seeing you all next year!
