On December 2, 2016, Humber and the United Way held their 7th Annual Spin-a-thon, a charity fundraising event that is organized and hosted by the 3rd semester students of the School of HRT Fitness and Health Promotion students. This charity fundraising event was organized and hosted by the third semester students of the Fitness and Health Promotion Students, School of HRT.
The event saw 21 teams, some with solo riders, others with as many as 8 on a team, fundraise with the goal of donating all of their pledges to the Toronto York Region United Way in exchange for their sweat! The teams had to participate in the event for 4 hours. The energy was extremely high as was the volume of music, enthusiasm and laughter. This single event raised over $13,000 and contributes to the overall Humber pledge from our Executive Office of $75,000.
