Students spin Friday

Student athletes from the University of New England, Saint Joseph’s College of Maine and the University of Southern Maine are coming together on a Friday night to spin for a good cause – the Cancer Community Center in South Portland.

The Cancer Community Center announces its second annual Collegiate Challenge at its third annual Cycle4Care fundraiser. The school that raises the most funds for the Cancer Community Center will have its name added to the Collegiate Challenge plaque.

“We are excited to defend our title as the 2012 Cycle4Care Collegiate Challenge winners,” said Sue Estabrook, women’s lacrosse coach at UNE. “Our student athletes had so much fun at last year’s event, and so many of them have had their lives touched by cancer that they are even more motivated to bring more students to the event and raise more funds for the Cancer Community Center this year.”

Cycle4Care brings together people of all abilities and is open to everyone, not just student athletes, for a fun evening of exercise, inspiration and caring. There are 100 bikes to fill, with committed and caring riders, for one-hour shifts from 4 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Jan. 25. Each hour will be led by a trained spin instructor at UNE’s Portland Campus’ Finley Recreation Center.
