The third annual Major Taylor Project Spinathon benefit, to be held on Thursday, Feb. 21 from 5 to 8 p.m., has expanded to new locations!
Live Love Flow, Seattle’s first indoor cycling yoga fusion studio, has agreed to co-host this year’s Spinathon! Tentative plans include adding a third location in the University District.
Our 2013 Spinathon goal is $35,000 with 100 percent of the evening’s proceeds going toward reaching more students at our existing South and Southeast Seattle Major Taylor Project sites, and to support the newly created Major Taylor Project Youth Leadership Retreat.
The Major Taylor Project transforms and empowers underserved youth through bicycling, by promoting leadership, personal responsibility and positive physical and social development. Named after Marshall “Major” Taylor, the turn of the century African-American U.S. and world bicycle sprint champion, the Major Taylor Project is a year-round youth development program focused on creating access and opportunities for youth in diverse and underserved communities. The project shares the importance of bicycling, leadership, community activism, bicycle maintenance, safety and the importance of working toward individual goals.
Come support the Major Taylor Project Spinathon at one of the following locations:
- Allstar Fitness, 2629 W Andover St, West Seattle
- Live Love Flow, 1223 E. Cherry St (by Seattle University)
- And possibly at a third location in the University District. Check the website for updates.
