Register For The Event: spin4.org/lasvegas
LAS VEGAS – Fitness and spin cycle enthusiasts are invited to experience a great workout at the Spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures event on Friday, December 3, 2021, while also supporting the estimated 30,000 Nevadans affected by inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures is a high-energy indoor cycling event at three of Southern Nevada’s top fitness clubs.
The event is geared to riders of all abilities. Hosted by the Nevada Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation in partnership with Bank of Nevada and the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV, funds from the event will fund research and help provide essential patient services.
Registration is open at www.spin4.org/lasvegas. Registrants can create their team, join a group, or ride solo. Registration is $25, and riders are encouraged to ask friends, family, and co-workers to support their ride. Top fundraising teams will earn prizes.
This year, the Marshall Family Philanthropic Fund has generously agreed to match funds raised through the event.
IBD is a lifelong condition that can often be debilitating and can lead to life-threatening complications. Due to the low number of Southern Nevada physicians specializing in IBD and the high number of patients, many travels out of state for treatment.
“Many participants ride for someone they love affected by IBD, or in some cases ride for themselves, hoping to inspire, encourage and motivate us to grow this movement,” said Jennifer Campbell, executive director, Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Nevada Chapter.
Last year, Spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures events across the nation raised more than $1 million to support research, education, and support programs for the IBD community. In Southern Nevada, event proceeds are split between the Nevada Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV.
“We are happy to contribute towards this worthwhile cause to help those suffering from chronic disease,” said Dr. Marc J. Kahn, Dean of the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV. “In addition to educating Southern Nevada’s doctors of the future, a large part of our mission is to serve the community, especially those with medical needs.”
At the time of registration, riders can choose the location and time of their ride, based on availability.
