Cardio Machines

Give hope to families struggling with Autism! Workout for Autism Speaks!

The Cardio Machine portion of this event will take place for the full 6 hours (9:00am-3:00pm). You can workout for the whole time or just pledge whatever time you feel most comfortable with.

Another fun way to enjoy the Cardio Machine option is to start a team! Being part of a team will allow you to work together with your friends and family to complete the physical task as well as raise important dollars to help those affected by Autism.

If you are forming a team and some members of your team are sharing the six hours on one or more pieces of equipment (versus one team member using a machine for all 6 hours); we ask that you work with your team members to set up a schedule to cover the full six hours on each machine. We will assign you the number of machines you need based on the number of team members and the number of hours each of you would like to participate.

Please note that if you are starting a team – all team members do not have to participate in the same activity. Forming a team is just a great way to work together and enjoy your experience to the fullest!

Our cardio machines include: Treadmills, Ellipticals, Cybex Arc Trainers, Recumbent Bikes, Upright Bikes and Stair Steppers.

Please note that the fundraising requirements are based on the amount of time you will be occupying a machine because of the limited space.

If you choose to occupy a machine for any amount of time up to 3 hours, you will be required to raise $250 for Autism Speaks (anything over 3 hours will be subject to the higher fundraising commitment).

If you choose to occupy a machine for any amount of time over 3 hours, you will be required to raise $500 for Autism Speaks.

All participants will receive an event t-shirt and goody bag. Panera Bread will be on site to provide participants with breakfast, lunch and refreshments for our closing celebration!
