CHANHASSEN, MN – More than 11,000 people participated in Ride for a Reason, a national indoor cycle event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Life Time Foundation, raising more than $1.81 million to date. Across the nation, 116 Life Time athletic resorts hosted the fourth annual event, raising more money than ever.
Life Time Green Valley (121 Carnegie St., Henderson, NV 89074) will host the grand finale event, which will feature several top Ride for a Reason fundraisers, on Saturday, April 13 from 8 a.m. to noon, meaning there’s still time to help reach the $2 million goal. Donations will be accepted through Wednesday, May 1 via text to give. Text “GIVE” to 785-833 to easily make a donation.
Since its inception in 2016, Ride for a Reason has raised more than $4.2 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Life Time Foundation. The annual event has gone from raising $500,000 in its debut year to nearly $2 million.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares its groundbreaking discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world. Funds raised through events like these help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
The Life Time Foundation is focused on proactive approaches to health in children, and works with schools across the nation to eliminate highly processed ingredients from their menus in favor of real, wholesome ingredients. Every dollar donated to the Life Time Foundation goes directly to schools in support of its mission of helping kids live healthy, happy lives because Life Time, Inc. covers all operating expenses.
