Springer Market Square spin-a-thon supports Ride for Inclusion

June 16, 2015 -

The City of Kingston is hosting a spin-a-thon in Springer Market Square from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Friday in support of Ride for Inclusion.

"Ride for Inclusion is about healthy attitudes and healthy living. It's working to celebrate acceptance and get young people active in the process," says Luke Follwell, director of recreation and leisure services.

The City will have 11 bikes available for spinners and donations will be collected for Ride for Inclusion – a fundraising effort of the Move for Inclusion organization that supports inclusion initiatives, non-profits and charities across Canada.

As part of the Ride for Inclusion, Nick Foley is cycling across country to raise awareness of the right for all people, regardless of ability, to be accepted and included. Communities along his route have been invited to participate by holding active awareness events.

To donate online or find our more, go to www.MoveForInclusion.com.
