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.

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.”
