Be Brave N' Fly for the Bravest of Them All

Most of us workout and enjoy a good sweat. In fact, there is so much talk today about health and fitness that many of us are finding ourselves doing various types of cross training to get in shape, be healthy and feel better about ourselves. When one couples physical fitness with a great cause, we find ourselves training harder to achieve our goals. The greater the cause, the harder the workout. I believe that there is a spark that ignites within and takes the workout and us to a higher level.

There will be plenty of sparks on March 16, 2013, when The Max Cure Foundation and Flywheel Sports, an indoor cycling studio, debut Be Brave N' Fly to raise money for low-income families living in the Flywheel communities across the country whose children are battling pediatric cancer. 100% of all the proceeds from this one-hour ride will provide the much-neededfunds for these families who are struggling emotionally and financially while their child undergoes treatment. Your ride will directly benefit those in your community. If you live in NYC, Englewood & Millburn NJ, Charlotte North Carolina, Boca Raton & Miami Florida, Atlanta Georgia, Chicago Illinois, Dallas Texas and Seattle Washington, come out and join us as we Roar For A Cure and take a stand against pediatric cancer. On top of raising money for the families that we support in your area, a portion of the proceeds will go to The Max Cure Foundation to help it further advance it's mission of funding the development of less toxic treatments for these children.

Life is filled with choices. We all make them everyday of our lives. Sometimes, the outcome goes in our favor but when it doesn't, we need to pick ourselves up; stay focused and determined to achieve our goals. These kids did not ask for cancer. Their families did not expect that in a matter of seconds their lives would be turned upside down and in many cases destroyed. These families have no choice, but to BE BRAVE.

"Children battling cancer undergo months, and sometimes years of chemotherapy to treat, and hopefully cure them of the deadly disease that poisons their bodies. Putting it into perspective, the chemotherapy is stronger than the cancer and the side effects can be quite harsh on these children as they get older. They need our support and so do their families".

Are you Brave enough to Be Brave N' Fly?
