An upcoming event will combine six-figure fundraising and exercise.
The American Stroke Association, a division of the American Heart Association (AHA), is presenting CycleNation on Saturday, Sept. 24, at the 8th Street Market in Bentonville. It’s the fourth year for the Northwest Arkansas event to raise awareness about heart disease, stroke and brain health.
Jon Davis and Tim Robinson are the local movement’s co-chairs and are recruiting companies and individuals to participate. More than a year of planning will culminate at the event, where teams of four to six stationary cyclists will ride to raise money and awareness for the AHA.
The fundraising minimum is $500 per rider or $2,500 per team. This year’s goal is $250,000, which goes toward stroke and heart disease research.
