Maccabi GB Community Spinathon goes the extra mile for an active Jewish Community

The first Maccabi GB Community Spinathon took place on Sunday and was a great success. Over 50 keen cyclists were put through their paces whilst raising an incredible £8,000 for Communal charities. They were supported by an incredibly enthusiastic 30 spectators.

Members of the Community, who collectively spun for a fantastic 75 hours, could choose to cycle and fundraise for Aleh, British Friends of Israel Guide Dog Centre, Camp Simcha, Save a Child’s Heart, or Maccabi GB

The event held at The Fitness Mosaic in Chalk Farm, was sponsored by Love Velo and the Elms Sports in School. Participants could get active by selecting a one, two or six hour time slot hosted by enthusiastic spinning instructors. The bike which covered the longest distance each hour won a prize - the likes of which included a signed Team GB jersey donated by event sponsor Love Velo and personal training vouchers from venue sponsor The Fitness Mosaic.

Jonathan Ross who himself spun for the entire 6 hours said, “It was brilliant being involved in the first Maccabi GB Community Spinathon and challenging myself to spin for 6 hours. It was a massive sense of achievement and knowing I had raised money for charity and been involved in a Community event was really rewarding”

Speaking about the event, Maccabi GB Event Coordinator Stacey Abendstern said, “This was the first time Maccabi GB has hosted a Spinathon event and it was fabulous to see all the charities and dedicated spinners. It was a real ‘community’ day and an event we look forward to hosting again in the future for an active Jewish Community.”
