DURHAM, N. H. – The University of New Hampshire’s Campus Recreation will participate in Spinning Nation, a fundraiser for the charity Ride 2 Recovery, which aids wounded soldiers during rehabilitation.

The indoor cycling event takes places Saturday, Feb. 27, 2010, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hamel Student Recreation Center, 128 Main Street, Durham, NH. Health clubs nationwide are participating in the fundraiser.

Participants are asked to donate or raise $75 per hour of spinning but any amount of money will be accepted, according to Linda Hayden, assistant director of Campus Recreation. Riders can sign up for one or two hours. 

“This is a really great event that will help a lot of people,” says Hayden. “Ride 2 Recovery provides mental and physical assistance for men and women in the armed forces.”
