Pedal to End Cancer Update
By Roland J. Hamelin, Contributing Writer
Thanks to the incredible commitment and determination of the entire family at Worcester Fitness Nation, we are completely sold out for the Sunday March 5, 2017 Pedal to End Cancer spin event. Amazing!
We are now in serious "fundraising mode". Our goal is to be the number one producing club in our area.
With your help...we will make this happen!
2017 PTEC Team!
We're full!! 22 Bikes have been reserved!!!!
We're in 3rd Place at $3,435 with 61 donations.
We trail Paxton Sports and Tennis Center by $300, and we are the only two clubs in Central MA participating.
22 bikes at $300 per bike puts us at a guaranteed $6600.
Last year we hit over $11,000.00.
Worcester Fitness has raised $94,000 in the history of Pedal to End Cancer, that's easily in the top 10 nationwide.
Can we put a little push into fundraising and break through $11,000? It won't be easy, but together we can do it.

Be personal with your requests.
Tell a story, make sure you ask for the money.
Update your fundraising page to ensure it has a photo of you and your own story.
While the generic posts to social media are quick and easy, they lack that personal touch.
Pick 30 people in your email address book that you have a connection with and send them a request for a donation.
Send Facebook Private Messages to your close friends asking them for $25.00.
Ask everyone you've ever donated to make a donation.
Facebook is filled with boring requests for money, so make you request stand out!
