Young Professionals Expect Miracles

Spin for Miles
Spin for Miracles Highlights

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Expect Miracles Foundation’s young professionals group (YPEM) came together on Thursday, September 14th for Spin for Miles – Spin for Miracles, an event at SWERVE followed by drinks and conversation at St. Pat’s Bar & Grill to raise money for Memorial Sloan Kettering and the Expect Miracles Foundation College Scholarship for a young-adult cancer survivor.


The goal was to ride 1,300 miles for the 1,300 children who will be diagnosed with cancer during the month of September - Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. There were two sets of classes, a 6:30 and a 7:30, competing against each other to see which class could rack up the most miles. While the spins classes didn’t quite surpass the 1,300-mile mark, they certainly surpassed the 1,300 mark in their fundraising, by raising over $4,000.

The 6:30 class kicked off the night with a lot of enthusiasm, eager to edge out the competition. However, the 7:30 class showed up full of energy and was just barely able to beat out the 6:30 class by a small percentage. The winning class was awarded some Expect Miracles Foundation shirts and hats for their efforts. Essentia generously provided water bottles and KIND Bar provided granola bars to keep everyone’s energy up as they headed over to the happy hour at St. Pat’s Bar & Grill.

The happy hour kicked off a little earlier for anyone who wanted to support the cause, but was not interested in spinning. As everyone filed in after the spin classes, St. Pat’s Bar & Grill was filled with laughter and chatter as over 70 attendees met up with friends and colleagues to network and support the mission of Expect Miracles Foundation. St. Pat’s Bar & Grill generously provided appetizers to keep everyone full after a hard work out. Attendees had the opportunity to win some great prizes including a Vineyard Vines Tie, an Ame & Lulu bag, and more.

The evening would not have been possible without the dedication of the YPEM NYC Leadership Team. Thank you to everyone who donated their night to help support Expect Miracles Foundation and the fight against cancer. We couldn’t do it without you! This year has been full of some amazing events and fundraising efforts hosted by YPEM, and Expect Miracles Foundation is so grateful to all of the generous companies and individuals who support us throughout the year.
