Unique #RideAgainstHunger Benefit March 5

NEW YORK, NY – The New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition is partnering with WhyHunger and the Peloton Cycle Studio in New York City for a cycling event to raise funds for and awareness of the hunger problem in the metropolitan area and across the country.

#RideAgainstHunger will bring 120 cyclists together at the Peloton Studio, 140 W 23rd St., NY, as well as other riders across the country on Saturday, March 5 to sweat, have fun and fight hunger. More than 48 million Americans, including 15 million children, struggle with hunger every year. In New Jersey, 900,000 people receive food assistance through the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and many more cannot afford to feed themselves and their families three nutritious meals a day.

Christine D’Ercole of Peloton will lead two hour-long classes, one at 2 pm and the second at 3:15 pm, featuring the music of such artists as Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, who are prominent in the anti-hunger movement. Each class is $50, with all proceeds from the event supporting NJAHC and WhyHunger in their efforts to end hunger.

“This a great way to not only raise money, but more importantly, to raise awareness,” said Adele LaTourette, executive director of the NJ Anti-Hunger Coalition. “Hunger in America is a growing problem and yet we have the means to end it. That’s the message we want to send. And this is a unique way to get that message out.”

“Together, WhyHunger and the Center for Food Action are working on innovative solutions to hunger that move beyond feeding to address the root causes of poverty,” said Noreen Springstead, executive director of WhyHunger. ” We found a great partner in Peloton, who are innovative in the own right in the cycling space.  This is a terrific opportunity to infuse fun into our important work.”

Cyclists in the studio will receive refreshments, a T-shirt, and a swag bag, as well as shoe bikes to wear during the class and will have access to the locker room and showers. Because Peloton bikes allow riders to livestream classes on their machines, cyclists across the country can join in and support the effort from their own homes.

“Everyone thinks they don’t have time. YOU DO,” D’Ercole said. “And you will be grateful for the time you GAVE.GIVE.”
