Spin for Hunger is a fun and exciting way to exercise while raising funds and awareness for the seniors, children, men, and women of the New York area who hunger and thirst physically as well as emotionally. All funds raised will benefit St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters, feeding, clothing, and counseling over 10,000 families in the New York area serving over 1.5 million meals a year. For more information on St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters, please visit their website

Participants across the building and real estate industry are joining forces and fundraising for the 45-minute cycling class with our venue sponsor SoulCycle and will celebrate afterward with great prizes for our top fundraisers, give-a-ways, t-shirts, and goody bags. FOX News’ Rosanna Scotto and Ines Rosales and SiteCompli’s Dana Trulis are chairing this year’s event and a clip of the spin will be aired on the following morning’s Good Day New York.

There is still time to reserve a bike, become an event sponsor, or sponsor a spinner!

Work Out, Give Back, Feel Good

This year, SoulCycle in Williamsburg hosted the event and the volunteers raised over $55,000 towards feeding NYC families in need this holiday season. A new record! In attendance were Fox News 5 Good Day New York’s co-hosts Rosanna Scotto and Ines Rosales, who highlighted the event.

It’s important to me to make time to give back to the community in which I live. I learned very early on the joy helping others brings. It’s something my parents always did while I was growing up. I am fortunate to have worked with some many volunteers in our industry who feel the same way, what a successful event! Click here to see photos from the event.
