Avapalooza is an annual event inspired by Avalanna Routh, who touched so many people before losing her brave fight against AT/RT, a deadly form of brain cancer. To date, this event has raised over $500,000 to fund AT/RT research.
Avapalooza 2016 will be the 5th year we have hosted the event and it promises to be bigger and better than ever!
Opening Ceremonies begin at 9:00am with special quest speakers:
Dr. Charlie Roberts, Director, Comprehensive Cancer Center, St. Jude's Childen's Research Hospital, the first and only National Cancer Institute (NCI)–designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children
Gerry Callahan, sports columnist for the Boston Herald and host of WEEI's Dennis & Callahan radio talk show. Avalanna was a big fan of Gerry's.
Dr. Craig McClain, Senior Associate in Perioperative Anesthesia at Boston Children's Hospital. Avalanna considered Craig a boyfriend & wanted to marry him - she loved Craig for many reasons, including but his ability to administer Proprofyl.
New England's premier spinning instructors will set the pace for our bike riders. DJ’s and live bands will provide the music. And don't you dare miss GloYo with YogaJake!
There will also be a silent auction & raffles, food, Avalanna’s Pub, and a bouncy castle for children. It’s all to support research for a cure to AT/RT.
You can be part of Avapalooza, whether you’re an avid spinner or have never seen a spin bike in your life (trust us, you’ll be fine). Our corporate sponsors have graciously covered all costs associated with Avapalooza, so 100% of the money you raise will go to pediatric cancer research.
If you're unable to attend in person but would still like to spin, you can set up your own Satellite Spinning location. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
