The Spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures event is coming up in Las Vegas.
The Crohn’s & Colitis Cures Foundation is calling all fitness and spin cycle enthusiasts in Las Vegas. The Spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures event is an exciting workout fundraising event. The goal is to help the 30,000 Nevadans that are currently affected by inflammatory bowel disease.
The event is high-energy indoor cycling that even non-spinners will enjoy. You don’t have to be an experienced spin cycle rider to participate. There’s no time limit or goal. It’s just to have a fun workout for a great reason. TruFusion Summerlin will host the event on Friday, April 28, 2023. Check in is at 3:00pm. There will then be four separate sessions that participants can join. 4:00pm, 5:00pm, 6:00pm and 7:00pm.
The Crohn’s & Colitis Cures Foundation invites riders to ask their friends, family and coworkers to support their ride.
Donations from the event will go directly to support two organizations for the same cause. The Crohn’s & Colitis Cures Foundation in Las Vegas will use their portion of the funds raised to help Nevada residents who live with inflammatory bowel disease. IBD is a lifelong condition with no cure. It is often debilitating and can even lead to life-threatening complications. The Crohn’s & Colitis Cures Foundation focuses on research and patient support locally. Their mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. They also offer extensive educational resources for patients and their families in Clark County.
The other recipient of funds raised by the Spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures event is the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV. Due to a lack of local physicians who specialize in IBD, many patients have to travel out of state for their treatments. Raised funds will help UNLV’s School of Medicine to increase medical resources for local patients.
