Cycle-A-Thon @ Baxter YMCA
Mar 4 @ 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Cycle-A-Thon @ Baxter YMCA | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis is hosting its first ever, Association-wide Cycle-a-thon on Saturday, March 4, 2017.

The goal of the cycle-a-thon is to build the Y community in Central Indiana, to raise funds, friend, and awareness for the annual campaign – specifically LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, and to provide an activity that will engage our staff, members, volunteers, donors and riders in support of the entire Association and its goals.

The Baxter YMCA is centering its focus on the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a 12-week training program for cancer survivors. With the support of generous donations, cancer survivors get to participate in this program for FREE.

This inaugural event will take place across our entire Association, in all of our communities, from 8am until 6pm on Saturday March 4th, 2017. Participants will enjoy challenging and energetic spin sessions under the direction of our YMCA staff, while raising funds to support local Y programs for those who could not otherwise afford them.

In addition to a GREAT RIDE, participants are rewarded with great swag if they raise additional funds to help support local YMCA programs for those who could not otherwise afford them. The Y will assist you with tools & tips for securing donations, including online giving.

Raise $125 and earn a pair of custom cycling socks!

Raise $500 and earn a custom jacket!

Mar 7 @ 9:00 am – Mar 8 @ 11:30 pm

Preschool students pedal as many laps as they can during our event to benefit our Annual Campaign. Students are asked to collect pledges per lap or one time gifts to help in our mission to make the Y open and accessible to all! To make a donation, contact Kenny Daniels at kdaniels@indymca.org or catch up with your favorite Baxter YMCA preschool student!

Our Center

I love helping others, get faster and stronger. That to me is what it is all about. They often joke about my folder! (Which has workouts in it, and I made them all one.)
