Wheels in Motion: Nationwide Ride of a Life Time Cycling Event Scheduled April 27 to Support Children’s Health

CHANHASSEN, MN (April 18, 2024) – As the health of our nation’s children continues to face challenges, Life Time (NYSE: LTH) is continuing efforts to drive positive change by hosting its Ride of a Life Time charity cycle event on April 27 across its portfolio of more than 170 athletic country clubs in the United States and Canada. 

Funds raised are split equally among Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® and the Life Time Foundation, two dedicated organizations that support children’s health. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a national nonprofit that engages local communities to fundraise for local member children’s hospitals. Life Time Foundation collaborates with school and non-profit leaders to help serve minimally processed foods in schools and encouraging healthy physical activity. The Life Time Foundation also recently expanded its focused-on forestation and conversation efforts to help combat climate change. Both organizations have a shared goal to positively impact children’s health. 

Since its inception in 2021, Ride of a Life Time has raised more than $2.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Life Time Foundation. Last year’s event raised more than $1 million for the causes with the goal of doing the same again this year. 

“Ride of a Life Time is an incredible opportunity for people to support two fantastic causes at the forefront of children’s health,” said Sarah Emola, Director of the Life Time Foundation. “Our Foundation has also expanded its focus into conservation efforts to help the health of our planet. We hope everyone in our communities will join us for an energetic event as we pedal for the causes. It’s easy for members and nonmembers of Life Time to take part.” 

Anyone can participate in Ride of a Life Time and individuals are encouraged to fundraise a minimum of $250. There’s a registration fee of $25 to reserve your bike, which goes toward both causes. Riders can expect a fun, heart-pounding combination of Life Time’s signature indoor cycling formats like AMP, EDG and PWR. 

Registration is open now at or on the Life Time Digital app for members. 

Non-members of Life Time can take part in Ride of a Life Time by registering at this link and selecting the Life Time location most convenient for them.  

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 member children’s hospitals that support the health of 12 million kids each year across the U.S. and Canada.  

“We’re thrilled to join forces with Life Time and the Life Time Foundation for its fourth-annual Ride of a Life Time fundraising event,” said Aimee J. Daily, Ph.D., President and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “When we bring together communities and partners for good, we know that we can make the greatest impact on the health of future generations.” 

The Life Time Foundation was established to inspire Healthy People, a Healthy Planet and a Healthy Way of Life. Beginning in 2011, the Life Time Foundation prioritized the ‘Healthy People’ aspect of its mission by supporting children’s health through youth nutrition and youth movement programs. 

With an eye toward the ‘Healthy Planet’ element of its mission, the Life Time Foundation now is expanding focus on forestation and conservation efforts to help combat climate change driven by fast-rising amounts of carbon dioxide (CO₂) in the atmosphere.
