Around The World with VIDA Fitness: THE WINNERS!

For the 4th year in a row, VIDA members traveled all over the world with their VIDA shirts in tow to submit their entries into our Where In The World is VIDA Fitness social media contest.

The rules are simple: visit an exotic location wearing your VIDA shirt, snap a photo and post it with the hashtag #VIDAWorld2016. This year had the most entries yet (67!) with members traveling to Asia, Europe, South America, Canada, Africa and the Caribbean – all rocking their VIDA shirts proudly. There were so many unique and impressive photos to choose from, but after much consideration and team voting we have selected our final three below! These top 3 showed the best combination of interesting shot, unique location, photo composition and interaction with the background/culture.

Congratulations to our winners!

Help Us Fight Ovarian Cancer This Fall!

2015's Ovarian Cycle Ride!

We brought the energy at 2015’s Ovarian Cycle Ride!

We are stoked to be bringing the folks from Ovarian Cycle DC back to the Yards for another cycle fundraising extravaganza! This year’s event will take place on Saturday, November 5th from 1-5pm (we’ve added an extra hour this year!) and all proceeds will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance.

Registration is $50 (only $35 if you register before September 15th!) and guarantees you a bike in the hour-long timeslot of your choice. The  Ovarian cancer survivors ride for free by using the discount code ‘SURVIVOR’ at checkout.

Registration info can be found here:

http://ovariancycle.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1162931

Each participant will receive a personalized fundraising page upon registration that can be used to raise as much money as possible leading up to the ride. There are some pretty fantastic incentives for reaching certain fundraising levels – check them out at the link above!

To kick off the fundraising season, we are hosting a special happy hour at the Penthouse Pool Club at the Yards this Thursday, September 15th from 7-10pm. All those who have raised at least $200 by noon on Thursday will be automatically entered to win several great prizes – so start spreading the word asap!

RSVP to our Facebook event page for up-to-date announcements and info as the ride gets closer. We can’t wait to see you on a bike in November!
