GENESEO – Livingston County’s only Ride for Hope fundraiser raised $4,000 on Saturday for children with long-term health conditions at Cycle Craze spinning and TRX studio on Main Street.
From 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., $20 spin classes were filled by about 75 participants, including local residents, the Livingston Cycling Club, and the South of the Thruway Runners. All of the day’s fees, plus any additional donations, went to Golisano Children’s Hospital at URMC and Camp Good Days.
“There really wasn’t an empty bike all day,” said Debbie Jerris, owner and instructor at Cycle Craze. “One woman, Doreen DeCamp, raised $900 for us.”
Participants walked out with a Cycle Craze t-shirt after their spin class.
Tony Sylor, Founder and President of the Livingston Cycling Club, pitched in for four youth members of the Once Again Nut Butter racing team to join in the spin class.
Golisano Children’s Hospital provides care for more than 84,000 children and their families every year from across New York State.
Camp Good Days is a free-of-charge summer camp that serves children touched by cancer and other life challenges. It has assisted more than 46,200 campers from 22 states and 31 foreign countries.
