Pedal for a Cause!

The Madison Area YMCA and the Borough of Madison Mayor’s Wellness Campaign presents Pedal for a Cause spinathon on Saturday, February 28, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to benefit the Madison Area YMCA’s LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a 12-week cancer survivors’ program, and the Y’s 2015 Annual Campaign.

The Annual Campaign raises awareness and funds for the Y’s financial assistance program that enables the participation of hundreds of children and families, who work or reside in Madison, Chatham and Florham Park, to participate in Y programs and services regardless of their abilities to pay. Support is provided based upon demonstrated need. All donations remain local.

The Annual Campaign also helps the Y broaden its reach into initiating enriching community wellness and health-enhancing programs such as its cancer survivors’ program LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, the Community Mental Health Initiative, the Diabetes Prevention Program and Walk with Ease, an arthritis program.
