Barnard Bike-A-Thon

It’s that time of year again!

Dear Friends,

The Physical Education Department is excited to announce that the 6th Annual Stationary Bike-A-Thon and Community Fitness Fair will be held Thursday, March 5th, 2009, in LeFrak Gymnasium from 11AM-11PM.  Come ride with us as we bring our community together through physical activity to raise money for local charity organizations, directly helping those in need, within the Columbia Community.  This year’s pledge form and team roster are available now online @ www.barnard.edu/fitbear; we ask that you register by Monday, March 2nd.

The event will begin at 11AM as individuals and teams begin competing against each other or peddle just for the cause to accumulate as many miles as possible.  Throughout the day movies will be shown and your favorite music will be played to keep the party going until the end.  Come by in the afternoon and visit with our sponsor Equinox Health Club 92nd St for fitness tips, light massage for riders, free club guest passes, club giveaways, and information about special membership plans for Barnard/Columbia affiliates.

All Riders are encouraged to solicit pledges from friends and family unable to participate, as 100% of all proceeds will be donated to Columbia Community Service, Inc.

Raise or Donate Over $15 to receive a 6th Annual Bike-A-Thon Commemorative T-shirt.

Top Rider/Donor prizes include tickets to a Mets or Yankees game, 30-Minute Massage, Membership to Equinox Health Club 92nd St, and more… www.barnard.edu/fitbear.

If you don’t have time to ride, Sponsor a Friend and stop by to cheer them on.

To register for the event or for more information, please visit www.barnard.edu/fitbear; call (212) 854-6959, or e-mail tcheatha@barnard.edu.

We look forward to seeing you on March 5th as you help support your friends and neighbors.
