Spinathon supports healthy lifestyle

The Comox Community Centre will host the seventh annual Spinathon Fundraiser March 3 for the Comox Valley chapter of the Canadian Tire JumpStart program.

Along with helping children participate in sports, the program supports the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation’s Take Heart, Breathe Well exercise program for those who suffer from chronic heart and lung conditions.

“Our focus for this event is to encourage a healthy lifestyle for young and old in our community all while raising money for two fantastic organizations in our community,” said Adam Smith, recreation programmer for the Town of Comox.

The Spinathon goes from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Riders will switch out every hour. Spin instructors will lead classes throughout the event. Children’s activities, including an inflatable obstacle course, will be available throughout the day.

Stuart Aldred, owner/operator of Courtenay McDonalds, will offer an early riser breakfast. There will also be a barbecue by donation operated by Gord Schreiner and his team from Comox Fire Rescue, and a variety of prizes.

To register, contact the Comox Community Centre at 250-339-2255 or Smith at asmith@comox.ca.
