$68,000 raised at Spin 4 Kids Newcastle 2023

March 29, 2023 by nswadmin

Novocastrians… you did it again! You put your pedal to the metal and took on the ultimate spin bike challenge to support kids who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability.

This year, 27 spandex- and tutu-clad teams saddled up for the 7th annual Variety Spin 4 Kids Newcastle! 17 teams joined in the fun at The Betting Rings at Newcastle Racecourse (the rain wasn’t stopping us) with 10 virtual teams kept the pedals spinning across Newie.

Over the course of the day, our teams cycled a combined 4354 km and raised more than $68,000 for kids who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability.

On behalf of the kids and families we support – THANK YOU!
