MORE THAN 60 people rode stationary bikes at Middlebury Fitness, spurred on by spinning instructors, for one to five hours on a recent Sunday earning donations for the United Way of Addison County.

MIDDLEBURY — The 4th annual Spin United fundraiser in support of the United Way of Addison County surpassed its $10,000 goal when participants took part in the spinning event hosted and sponsored by Middlebury Fitness on Sunday, Jan. 22.

On that day, 64 spinning fundraisers and 181 donors raised $11,391 for United Way and its programs and partners.

Spinners at this event rode stationary bikes anywhere from one to five hours in exchange for donations. There were three five-hour spinners this year: Susan Schaefer of Milo Memorial, Ashley LaDuke of FlyWheel, and Stacey Dwire.

This year’s event was made up of 18 teams from all over Addison County and representing several businesses and organizations. Participating teams were; BreadLoaf Spinners, Counseling Service of Addison County (two teams), FlyWheel, MiddFit, MiddLoons, MiddSpin, Middlebury YoPros, Milo Memorial, Old Spokes, Porter Peddlers (two teams), SpinCycle, Spinderella, Team Edgewood, Team Midd (two teams), and Team Schiffer.

 The top three fundraising teams were Ann Hanson’s MiddSpin, Abby Blum’s Team Midd, and Laura Rumbough’s Team Edgewood with a combined total of over $4,300. Team Edgewood will be donating their fundraising efforts to Counseling Service of Addison County, which had 12 spinners participating and is one of United Way of Addison County’s funded partners.

Organizers said this event was made possible with the help of many volunteer spinners and the generosity of the Addison Independent and Middlebury Fitness owner Jerrod Rushton. They also expressed appreciation for Rushton’s facility and team of volunteer instructors and staff, who kept spinners energized and entertained throughout the entire event. Those included Ashley LaDuke (instructor and five-hour spinner), Lauren Ringey (instructor), Megan Sears (instructor), Janice Rushton (instructor), Tamara Chase (instructor) and Cody Mahoney (front desk).

Also on hand were volunteer massage therapists Donna Perrin of Touch Massage and Abby Murphy. This much-appreciated service worked out kinks and soothed the tired muscles of spinners.
