Saratoga Cycling Studio Raises $450 For Breast Caner
SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Cycling Studio demonstrated their fundraising prowess this past Sunday by partnering with the Team Luna Chix Albany Triathlon group. The studio had 20 riders and raised $450 for the Spinning fundraiser to fight breast cancer. The fundraiser was the brainchild of Sarah Austin, a Star II Spinning Instructor and AFAA group fitness instructor, who taught the 90-minute Spinning class to raise the funds. The Albany Triathlon Team is a group of women dedicated to bringing the sport of triathlon to more women in a comfortable, encouraging, educational and compassionate environment. “We are Team LUNA Chix Albany Triathlon and our mission is to get women active in the community in a non-competitive form,” said Dawn Borysewicz Vitti, member of LUNA Chix. “We sponsor clinics, workouts and special events throughout the region while raising money for the Breast Cancer Fund.” As the only official Spinning facility in Saratoga Springs, Saratoga Cycling Studio has been open for a little over one year. During this time, the studio has participated in over 20 fundraisers and donated to over 40 charitable causes, including three rides for breast cancer awareness.
