YMCA Spin-A-Rama 2019 at Gills YMCA

On March 2, the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg hosted the 12th annual YMCA Spin-A-Rama event, supporting those in cancer recovery.

The Jim & Heather Gills YMCA and Bardmoor YMCA, located in St. Petersburg & Largo respectively, hosted hundreds of dedicated riders who rode for this cause. Together they raised more than $45,000 in donations. Donations are still being accepted today at www.stpeteymca.org/spinarama.

YMCA Spin-A-Rama helps support our LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program. This program has been in existence for 12 years and focuses on rebuilding the body, mind and spirit of its participants. LIVESTRONG® at the Y encourages a safe, comfortable place to build companionship with others affected by cancer and to share inspiration. This program has helped thousands of cancer recovery participants move beyond the disease.

LIVESTRONG® at the Y is a nationwide program that has served over 50,000 people in over 600 communities by over 3,500 trained YMCA staff members (2/1/2018 data). Learn more about this program on our website at www.stpeteymca.org/spinarama.

The Y supports our community with many programs made possible through generous donations. Annual giving ensures that we are able to offer many meaningful programs like the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program, YMCA Dance Academy, youth sports, affordable childcare and LIVESTRONG® at the Y to mention a few.
