Sign Up Now for Spinfest, An Epilepsy Fundraiser

By Diane Ako

HONOLULU (KHNL) - A lot of Oahu folks will be spinning their wheels this month, but definitely getting somewhere! The sign up starts now for the Honolulu Club's annual SpinFest, a fundraiser for the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii (EFH).

"We are proud to be involved in an event that supports a healthy community," says Honolulu Club general manager Beth Aylward.

The January 25th event lasts for 12 consecutive hours starting at 6 a.m. at the Honolulu Club. For a suggested donation of $20 per hour, you can hop on one of 40 stationary bikes, get a workout, and raise money and awareness for EFH. The event will be in the porte cochere of the Honolulu Club, at the corner of King Street and Ward Avenue.

The Honolulu Club expects about 200 people, including some with epilepsy, to sign up. It hopes to raise $10,000.

Epilepsy affects approximately 50 million people worldwide, including more than 3 million in the United States and 19,000 in Hawai'i. It can be controlled through medication or surgery. The Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii has been in existence for 32 years.

SpinFest is a lead-in to Sharon's Ride, which will be held January 27 at Kapiolani Community College. The event features bike rides (10K, 35K, 75K, 100K) around southeast Honolulu, and 5K and 10K runs near Diamond Head.

To sign up, call the Honolulu Club at 543-3900.
