Power4Power will provide help to Boys & Girls Club

No one wants to think about the next storm to hit Greenwich especially since the last ones have left residents without power for more than a week. But the Boys and Girls club of Greenwich is preparing in a unique way, through a series of spin classes.

You can help the club prepare for the next storm, power outage, or other emergency by participating in its first Power4Power spin fund-raiser. A power outage on an afternoon means club kids are out of touch with parents in a darkened clubhouse with only an emergency stairwell and exit lighting.

But a backup generator can power the telephone system and lighten dark hallways, turning a scary situation into a safe haven for club members and their families. And if the community is in need of a power boost, just as was the case during the damage left by Superstorm Sandy, the club will be able to get up and riding sooner to assist if it has that generator.

The Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich needs the power of the Greenwich community to secure the generator, though. Club estimates say that $75,000 is needed for the installation, operation and upkeep of it and the community, which has been such a strong supporter of the club can once again help the club out while improving their own physical fitness in the process.

By participating in one or all four spin classes, individuals can get involved. They can register at Equinox of Greenwich. Equinox has studios that are equipped with the latest in Schwinn technology, ensuring a challenging and invigorating ride from beginning to end.

For the convenience of supporters there are four spin classes to choose from: Saturday, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m. and Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 11 a.m., both of which will be led by P.J. Johns, Friday, Feb. 1 at 7:30 a.m. with Karen Leach and Saturday, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. which will be led by Emma Swain

All classes are to be held at Equinox Greenwich at 16 Old Track Road. People can register online at bgcg.org/power4power or by contacting Kathy Seiden at 203-869-3224 or at [email protected]

The  cost is $100 to reserve a bike on a date of choice. Space is limited and it will be determined on a first come, first serve basis.
