April 30 Ride of a Life Time Cycling Event Aims to Raise One Million Dollars to Improve Children’s Health

Life Time, the nation’s premier healthy lifestyle brand, hosted is its annual Ride of a Life Time charity cycle event on Saturday, April 30th to raise money for local children’s hospitals and schools.

Ride of a Life Time benefits Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Life Time Foundation, two dedicated organizations that support hospitals caring for kids in need and collaborate with school food leaders to help them serve wholesome, nourishing, minimally processed foods in schools across the country, respectively. Life Time set a $1 million fundraising goal for the second annual event after raising more than $640,000 during the inaugural event last fall.

“Ride of a Life Time allows our members to make a positive impact in helping kids to live healthy, happy lives,” Life Time President and Chief Operating Officer Jeff Zwiefel says. “Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Life Time Foundation have missions to support the health of children in our communities, and we’re pleased to host this event once again for these tremendous causes.”

Nearly 150 Life Time athletic country clubs across the country hosted rides in their premier indoor cycle studios. Riders could choose to ride for one to four hours as this in-person event featuring Life Time’s popular AMP, EDG and PWR indoor cycle signature formats. 12 locations in the Chicagoland area supported Lurie Children’s, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, in their fundraising.

Life Time’s location at One Chicago/River North, pictured below (insert photo), announced that they surpassed their team goal of $5,000 just moments before the cycling class started! The cycle studio at One Chicago is a special one – especially because it’s just two blocks from Lurie Children’s hospital. We’re so grateful to everyone at Life Time for the love and support you all send to the patients and families inside those rooms. 

Lurie Children’s thanks all Life Time members and teams for all your support during this year’s Ride of a Life Time event! To learn more about Ride of a Life Time, click here.
