October 15 @ 9:15 am
The Darien YMCA is holding a spin-a-thon fundraising event for the community on Sunday, Oct. 15 to benefit the Y’s “revive” cancer rehabilitation program.
The Darien YMCA’s “Revive” cancer rehabilitation program is open to local residents who are currently undergoing or have undergone treatment in the past year.

The program is complimentary, and its goal is to provide patients with renewed stamina for day-to-day living. Revive participants receive 12 one-hour personal training sessions each week with one of the Y’s certified Cancer Exercise Specialist (CES) trainers.
They also receive a complimentary three-month membership to the Darien YMCA, including access to the Wellness Center, pools, group fitness classes and other amenities. The program is made possible through fundraising events and private donations.
The event will include three back-to-back, hour-long classes, starting at 9:15 a.m. Darien Y spin instructors, Keri Harden, Melissa O’Brien and Beverly Wagner will teach all three classes together.
Participants can register for one, two or all three of the one-hour classes at either the Standard level price (for a chance to win a massage) or Competition level price (for a chance to win a six-month membership). Registration in advance is required on this Web page of the Darien Y website or at the Darien Y’s front desk.
The Darien Y’s Wellness Center is available to answer questions at 203-655-8228 ext. 1322 or by emailing Jess Van Sciver at email@example.com.
