Spin to Win raises money for diabetes research

Filed under:

More than 300 people took time out of their work day Thursday to spin on stationary bikes in Washington, D.C. for an event that raised nearly $90,000 for diabetes research.

The event was the second annual Spin to Win put on by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Capitol Chapter. Fox 5 News and Sport & Health were top sponsors and news broadcasters joined teams of riders from local businesses in a little friendly competition. A few riders were pretty serious, showing up in racing garb and breaking 40 mph during their ride.

In the end, it was about bringing hope for a cure for type 1 diabetes. Donations are still being accepted. To donate, click here.
