Achilles Kids Fundraiser Event Banner for fbook

ACHILLES KIDS SERVES CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES THROUGH FREE ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES AND ASSISTS THEM IN RUNNING A “VIRTUAL MARATHON”. WHEN THEY HAVE COMPLETED RUNNING, WALKING OR ROLLING (IN WHEELCHAIRS) 26.2 MILES THEY ARE REWARDED WITH A NEW PAIR OF SNEAKERS!

SOULCYCLE RIDE:
Ride begins at 1:30 PM sharp
You are highly encouraged to arrive at the studio between 1:00 PM and 1:15 PM for sign in, shoe change, bike setup, and if new, waiver signing and quick tutorial on your first ride!
The 45 minute class will be led by SOULCYCLE Instructor NICK SPADARO in Studio B at East 83rd!
The good news? This is a Charity ride so that voice in your head that is telling you that you’re ‘not good enough’ to ride in the front row should be silenced. It’s a dark room with candles. No one is watching you & it is a judgement free zone so grab a bike up front, saddle up, sweat it out & dance your best dance on that bike for the Achilles Kids, why? Because you can!!
All tickets for this event include water & shoe rental, courtesy of SOULCYCLE.
For more information on SOULCYCLE, visit www.soul-cycle.com
100% of your donation will go directly to the Achilles Kids Program*

AFTER RIDE RECEPTION:
Dorrian’s Red Hand – 3:30PM
After sweating it out for Achilles Kids at SOULCYCLE you will be hungry & thirsty and need a place to meet your family & friends who are not riding! So hop over a block north and east to our “second home”
We have arranged an after ride reception kicking off at 3:30PM at Dorrian’s Red Hand located on the SE corner of Second Ave & 84th Street
Academy Securities, a disabled veteran owned broker-dealer, will be providing snacks & Dorrian’s has some great drink specials lined up for us!
Tickets to the after ride reception are $20 in advance using the Eventbrite ticket option above. Cash will be accepted at the door however, so we can provide an accurate count and determine how much food we will need, we are asking that you purchase your ticket here beforehand. 100% of the proceeds from the ticket to the after ride reception will go directly to the Achilles KIDS Program.
Spread the word & bring your friends.
