Notes of Appreciation: Business made ‘Spin United’ a success

United Way of Addison County would like to send a giant thank you shout-out to Middlebury Fitness for their support and community spirit. On Sunday, Jan. 25, Middlebury Fitness hosted the second annual “Spin United” in support of UWAC and our partner agencies. They raised $7,000 for our community. The proceeds go to the United Way of Addison County general fund for community needs. Thank you, Middlebury Fitness. What a fun and healthy way to contribute to our community.
Spin instructors Tamara Chase, Megan Sears, Julia Steen, Paul Philbin, and Janice Rushton all generously donated their time to keep us going throughout the day with their super enthusiasm and energy. Jerrod Rushton graciously hosted and sponsored us with their beautiful facility for our event.
Prizes and sponsorship were provided by Tata Harper Skincare, Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op, the Addison Independent, Ellen Spring Silk, the Rainbow Room, Homestead Wreath & Candle Shop, Long Trail on the Falls Physical Therapy, Vermont Gas, Eagle 97.5 and ProSkin Studios. Thank you for making our event more fun with prizes and well stocked with snacks to keep us going.
New this year was the addition of five wonderful massage therapists who very generously donated their incredible skills to keep our muscles loose and keep us pedaling. This included Matthew Perrello, Terrie Davis, Jody Higgs, Donna Perrin, and Nancy Tellier. We cannot thank them enough for taking such good care of us and our bodies.
Huge kudos to the 45 community members who came out and participated in this event for our community. We had spinners ride anywhere from one to six hours. Three riders made it for all six hours: Megan Sears, Lindsay Lalonde and Per Eisenman (who was riding for the Counseling Service of Addison County). Our team winner was Team Midd (Middlebury College), followed by Team CSAC (Counseling Service of Addison County) and Team Charter House. Our individual winner was Ann Hanson, who singlehandedly raised over $1,000.
We are so lucky to have businesses like those listed above and people in Addison county who truly LIVE UNITED and get involved to support us and our community in so many ways. Thank you all.
Nancy Luke
