YAS-A-THON for ThinkCure: June 12th

YAS Fitness on Abbot Kinney is having a fundraiser to fight cancer. While the bike riding portion of the event in Venice appears to be booked solid, there will be a charity auction before the event you can attend!

From YAS Fitness:

YAS Fitness Centers is proud to partner with ThinkCure! to fund cutting-edge collaborative research and fight cancer during the 2nd Annual YAS-A-THON on Sunday, June 12th from 1-4pm at all studio locations.

YAS Venice Beach

“As a cancer survivor, this charity is close to my heart,” says YAS Founder Kimberly Fowler. “Last year, we raised nearly $150,000 to further the research that saved my life.” More than 11.1 million cancer survivors living in the U.S. prove how vital this research is, and because of non-profits like ThinkCure!, the futures of children diagnosed with cancer are even brighter. Thirty years ago, about half of children with cancer were lost, but today, 90% are cured!

“We’re thrilled that YAS has chosen to partner with ThinkCure! to raise money to fight cancer. Their enthusiasm and energy are inspiring, and we love working with them,” exclaims Sarah Gallagher, ThinkCure! Director of New Media and Development. “The money that the YAS team raises goes directly to funding cutting edge research projects focused on new, effective treatments for a range of cancers including brain cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.” To participate and reach YAS’s goal, each registered participant must raise (or contribute) a minimum of $1,000 per bike.

“Participating in the ThinkCure! YAS-A-THON was an inspirational, motivational, and meaningful event for me. The YAS community came together as a family working towards an important goal – all joining together, working so hard, and riding for the cure,” says Amy Horwitch, YAS member.

The top three fundraisers will also take home exclusive prizes: 1st prize is four Field Level seats and a VIP Batting Practice Experience during ThinkCure! Weekend with the LA Dodgers; 2nd prize is a Yearly Unlimited Series at YAS; and 3rd prize is a 3-month Unlimited Series at YAS.

Pre-ride cocktail parties, featuring silent auctions, will be held on Saturday evening before the event at YAS Venice and Costa Mesa locations. Some of the coveted silent auction items benefiting the charity will include, a Glenn Bartels scooter valued at $2,000, two round-trip tickets on Jet Blue, four LA Dodgers tickets with reserved parking, a signed script from Sex and the City, Botox treatments from Dr. Linda Li of Dr. 90210, a luxury Cabo resort vacation, tickets for and a gift basket from the Ellen DeGeneres show, packages from Dermalogica, Vince, and Vita Coco, a dinner for four at Venice’s iconic James Beach, and many other services for luxury beauty treatments, premier restaurants, A-list clothing, products, and more.

Although Venice and Silverlake locations sold out in just two days, there is still room to ride at the Downtown and East Costa Mesa YAS locations. It’s as easy as registering, recruiting sponsors, and riding. Each rider must complete a Rider Registration form (available at the front desk of each YAS location) and submit it to the front desk, then, set up a personal fundraising page at First Giving. Self-sponsoring is also allowed.

For more information or to register for the YAS-A-THON, visit or contact any YAS location: Venice (310) 396-6993, Silverlake (323) 665-6011, East Costa Mesa (949) 548-3888, or Downtown LA (213) 430-9053.
