loveFAR GLOW IN THE DARK Spin-a-thon

In the light of the recent Typhoon in the Philippines, CJ Burford, local 8 year old cyclist wanted to do an emergency relief fundraiser. He had the idea to do a "spin-a-thon" and in full 8 year old boy spirit asked that it also be a GLOW IN THE DARK party! He partnered with loveFAR and sponsors (Brian T. Schoonover with Edward Jones in Kernersville, NC, Parks Chevrolet, Oakridge Shrubbery & Landscaping, and Oak Ridge Physical Therapy) to make this happen on December 7, 2013 at Mustang Fitness Crossfit in Oak Ridge, NC.

Proceeds from this event were donated to Samaritan's Purse Disaster Relief in the Philippines. LoveFAR appreciates the support of everyone who came out to this special event to help these people who are in such a desperate situation, while at the same time having great fun and getting a workout.  The loveFAR GLOW IN THE DARK Spin-a-thon raised more than $500!
