Additionally, marine industry groups such as the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, United States Superyacht Association, Young Professionals in Yachting and their member companies are also supporting Spin-a-thon and a strong number of marine industry professionals and community supporters are also expected to ride and help in the fundraising efforts.

David Reed, Chairman of MICF said, “We’re excited to bring Spin-a-thon back and we’re looking forward to a great event again this year. The first Spin-a-thon was in 2009 on the rooftop of the Zoo Gym and we are looking forward to being back on Fort Lauderdale Beach again. It’s a great way for everyone to get involved, raise money for some good causes and have some fun too.”

“Fort Lauderdale is such a vibrant active and caring community and we are thrilled to be a part of this event that gives so much to our local community,” said Barbara Fleming Franchise Owner of CycleBar Fort Lauderdale.
