Share your fundraising page
When your team registers for Spin 4 Kids, they will receive an online fundraising page through Everyday Hero. Share this page with your work mates, your boss, your best friends and family (via email, social media etc) and ask them to donate to your team. After all, you are going to be riding a spin bike for six hours so we are sure they would love to sponsor your efforts!
A great way to kickstart the fundraising is to make your first donation! People will be more likely to support you knowing you have personally committed to the challenge and supported yourself along the way.
Hold an event
There are lots of ways you can fundraise within the local community including team BBQ’s, raffles, trivia nights, cake stalls etc. It can be as big or small as you want it to be!
Improve your online fundraising page
Personalise your fundraising page by uploading a profile photo, setting a fundraising goal and sharing your story. Your donor’s will love it!

How many people can we have in a team, and can someone do the challenge on their own?
You can have up to 10 people in a team. Each person will take in turns riding the spin bike over the six hour challenge. Each team will need to develop a strategy to get through the 6 hour challenge. There is no restrictions on how many minutes or hours each rider has to do. Of course, you are more than welcome to do the challenge on your own – we’ll be there to cheer you on the day!
What happens if the event is cancelled?
The good news is, it won’t be! If Mother Nature isn’t on our side on the day, the event will be moved into the Forum Harbourside at Honeysuckle.

You will need running shoes, sneakers or enclosed shoes to participate. No thongs, sandals or clip in riding shoes are permitted. Your team is encouraged to dress up and have fun with your theme. Prizes will be awarded for best dressed team. The crazier the better!! For example you might come as the super heroes, the Lance Armstrong all-stars, the clowns or the wedding crashers! Be bold!
Do we have to fundraise?
Fundraising is not compulsory but is encouraged to enable Variety to raise enough funds to support as many local kids who are living with disabilities, chronic illness, geographic isolation and or financial hardship as possible. Variety is a non-government funded charity so every urgently needed piece of equipment, therapy session, vehicle modification (and much more) that is granted is all thanks to the amazing support of people like you and your team.
