Philly Spin-In Raises More Than $812,000 to Support Cardiac Center at CHOP in Event’s Sixth Year

On May 14 and 15, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) hosted its sixth annual Philly Spin-In, a high-energy team cycling party, raising more than $812,000 (and counting!) to benefit the Cardiac Center at CHOP. Close to 1,700 CHOP families, caregivers, supporters, and friends affected by pediatric congenital heart disease joined the event with outdoor participants in the parking lot of the Roberts Center for Pediatric Research and others cycled for little hearts virtually at home. The sessions were led by some of Philadelphia’s hottest cycling instructors and the event was filled with heart pumping music along with captivating “CHOP Heart Warrior” patient stories.

Proceeds from the sixth annual Philly Spin-In will directly support patient treatment and research that benefits children with heart conditions both here in the local community and around the world. Current projects funded by the Philly Spin-In aim to enhance training, efficiency and communication – all with the goal of continuing advancements in patient care.

The Cardiac Center at CHOP features one of the largest and most accomplished medical teams in the world, with each member specially trained to care for children with congenital heart conditions. Collectively, the Cardiac team has revolutionized the way children with congenital and acquired heart conditions are diagnosed, treated and followed into adulthood.
