Our very own Melissa Marotta & Barbara Hoots will be co-leading the 11th Annual Special Olympics 6-Hour “Ride for a Reason” on Saturday, March 19 in Burlington, Vermont. Joined by Spinning® Master Instructors Angie Scott and Anthony Musemici, Melissa and Barbara will be leading 100+ riders to raise money to support the children and young adults supported by the Special Olympics.
In addition to an inspiring day of motivating instructors, live music, and awesome energy, riders will have the opportunity to hear directly from Special Olympics athletes themselves about how their lives have been changed through their participation with the organization – thus giving a deeper source of fuel for every pedal stroke.
The event will be held at the Champlain Valley Exposition Center outside of Burlington. If you've ever thought about checking out the beauty of Vermont, now might be the perfect occasion. Melissa and Barbara will be thrilled to have some folks from the ICI community take part in this special event. Come say hello, and you might even find yourself invited to ride on stage.
