Cycle for a Cause
Cycle for a Cause Instructor, Laura Eagen Cycle for a Cause is a project started to raise money and promote health through group exercise classes at the UND Wellness Center. Cycle for a Cause is a cycle class that was launched in the spring semester of 2012. The participants consist primarily of UND students, faculty and staff. Every mile cycled in the class will be logged and matched by community sponsors. Sponsors donate from a penny to a dollar per mile. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Altru's Cardiology Department.
The instructor, Laura Eagen develops a presentation for each time the class meets, educating participants on the various types of Cardiovascular Diseases.
Cycle for a Cause : Spring 2012 Results
• Raised $500 for Altru's Cancer Research Center (Sponsored by Hugo's, Scheels, and Bremer Bank)
• Over 220 individuals participated in the cause.
• Approximately 4,000 miles were biked in a 2 month period.

Registration for teams starts on Thursday, November 1st. Sign-up sheets are located at the Wellness Center Welcome Desk.
Teams will bike against each other in friendly, energy-filled competitive environment. Each participant will bike for 20 minutes, their miles will be logged. Participants will be given a free t-shirt and prizes will be awarded to the team with the most spirit, the team that raises the most money (teams can contribute more than $140), and the team that biked the most miles. Individual prizes will also be awarded at the conclusion of the event.
