Twinsburg, OH – Snap Fitness 24/7 clubs in Twinsburg, Streetsboro and Kent hosted a Pedal For Heroes event to honor and support area veterans. On February 23, 2014, the fitness centers hosted “2014 Pedal For Heroes” event, where teams and participants cycled for 274 minutes representing the number of military personnel from OHIO who have sacrificed their lives for the country since Sept. 11, 2001.
“We are very excited to hold the Pedal For Heroes event because veterans have given so much for us,” said Bill Chilton, owner and coordinator of the event at Snap Fitness in Twinsburg. “This event will help us give back to them. Our goal is to raise money to help area veterans.”
Proceeds from each participant will be donated to Pedal For Heroes USA, a 501(c)(3) organization, to provide services to local veterans. Last year, over $17,000 was raised by teams at the participating fitness facilities holding Pedal For Heroes events.
