DARIEN, Conn. –  The Darien YMCA is holding a spin-a-thon fundraising event for the community on Sunday, Oct. 15 to benefit their “revive” cancer rehabilitation program.

The event will include three back-to- back classes of one hour each, starting at 9:15 a.m. Darien Y spin instructors, Keri Harden, Melissa O’Brien and Beverly Wagner will teach all three classes together.

Participants can register for one, two, or all three of the one hour classes at either the Standard level price (for a chance to win a massage) or Competition level price (for a chance to win a six-month membership). Registration in advance is required at / or at the Darien Y’s front desk.

The Darien YMCA’s “revive” cancer rehabilitation program is open to local residents who are  currently undergoing or have undergone treatment in the past year. The program is complimentary and its goal is to provide patients with renewed stamina for day-to- day living.

Revive participants receive twelve one-hour personal training sessions each week with one of the Y’s certified Cancer Exercise Specialist (CES) trainers. They also receive a complimentary three-month membership to the Darien YMCA, including access to the Wellness Center, pools, group fitness classes and other amenities. The program is made possible through fundraising events and private donations.
