On Sunday, June 3rd, YAS riders will once again spin their hearts out while blasting thousands of calories to raise thousands of life-saving dollars. Kimberly Fowler and YAS Fitness Centers are proud to once again partner with the LA Dodger’s charity ThinkCure! to fund cutting-edge collaborative cancer research at City of Hope and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles,
“We have raised over $325,000 for this remarkable cause in the past two years,” said YAS Founder and cancer survivor Kimberly Fowler. “This year’s fundraising from silent auctions, raffles, and sponsored riders is sure to surpass our wildest expectations. The YAS community is proud to share our laughter, sweat, and tears in exchange for vital cancer research during this amazing weekend event.”
Pre-ride kickoff parties, featuring premier silent auctions and raffle prizes, will be held the evening before the event on Saturday, June 2nd at YAS Venice and Costa Mesa locations. Lucky bidders will score a coveted private party at James Beach, nights at Hotel Erwin, flights on JetBlue, signed Dodger Memorabilia and much more. Food will be provided by Bayou City and music spun by DJ Rafael DeLa Cruz.
Sponsored by Vita Coco and Smart Water, the event boasts exclusive prizes for top fundraisers. The rider who raises the most money to fight cancer will win a $12,000 all-inclusive holiday to Fiji, including flights and accomodations at a 5-star private island resort, courtesy of Fiji Vacations (http://www.fijivacations.com).
