Variety is looking for Newcastle’s fittest company

Variety – the Children’s Charity, is once again looking to crown Newcastle’s fittest company as the “Kings of Spin”, with the second edition of Variety Spin 4 Kids to be held on Friday the 7 September at Harbour Square, Honeysuckle.
Following the hugely successful inaugural challenge in 2017 that raised over $40,000 for local sick and disadvantaged kids, the event is a six-hour spin bike challenge, where teams of up to 10 people aim to ride as many kilometres as possible between 10 am-4 pm.
Variety’s Head of Regional Development, Jason Bourke says “It’s up to individual teams to work out their winning strategy.
There’s no limits to the number of rider changes, so whether it’s short bursts and regular changeovers, or longer sessions with no stopping, the aim of the game is to tick over the furthest distance possible in six fun-filled hours.”
He added “The Variety Spin 4 Kids event will raise funds for local kids who are living with disabilities, chronic illness or financial hardship. To do that with high-energy music, crazy costumes and energetic spin instructors is just a bonus. We really appreciate the support we continue to receive from Newcastle businesses, including our major sponsor - Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group, and hope to smash last years’ fundraising total.”

Entry is $650 per bike (with additional fundraising encouraged) and includes the after party. Apart from crowning the winners, there will be prizes for highest fundraising team, best dressed team, best team spirit and more.
