CLUB Rivers is partnering with Highlow Fitness Riverwood in hosting an all new fundraising challenge for local businesses and residents with a SPINATHON for White Ribbon.
As the name suggests, teams will be raising funds for White Ribbon Australia by hitting the cycle studio for 5 hours straight! The SPINATHON will take place at the new Highlow Fitness Centre in the Morris Iemma Sports Centre Riverwood on Saturday, August 5, between 7am – midday.
The fundraising idea was born after Club Rivers recently attended a St George Liquor Accord meeting where it was discussed that domestic violence is on the increase within the St George Local Government Area.
After hearing how high the statistics are, Club Rivers decided to get on the front foot and to help where they could.
"With domestic violence prevalent in our local area, we wanted to support our community and make a difference by raising funds and awareness," said Nicole Heinrich, Marketing & Communications Manager.
"It is so great to have the support of our local organisations and especially Highlow Fitness in hosting the event".
Club Rivers and Highlow Fitness are calling on your support on the day and cheer on the cyclists as they battle through the sweat and smiles. There will be a free breakfast to all that come along as well as music and free entertainment for the kids.
The event is estimated to raise over $3,500 for White Ribbon Australia who run violence prevention programs and campaigns to stop violence against women. One in three women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them.
