The Peer Project Charity Spin-A-Thon Update
Great News! The Peer Project's 1st annual 24-Hour Spin-A-Thon was a huge success. We had so many hard-core riders and new riders, many of whom were taking multiple-hour stints on the bikes - even through the early morning hours! People were tired, but everyone had a great time - can't wait for next year!
The Results: So far, we have raised over $31,000 towards their proven peer mentoring program for at-risk youth in our city. If you didn't have a chance to sponsor one of the many riders, pledges are still being accepted up until February 15, 2013, you can still access the event by visiting The Peer Project's website at www.thepeerproject.com.
We would like to thank the many riders, volunteers, and sponsors who made this fantastic event possible, and most importantly, we want to thank the over 480 donors.

Featured product - waiola coconut water
We have a great new nutritional product in the store - Waiola coconut water. Coconut water is nature's sports drink - it is high in electrolytes that we loose through sweating and need to replace, plus it has a little natural & un-refined sugar to replace what you've used during exercise.
Waiola is made from young coconuts, producing a water that is extra high in electrolytes with only half the sugar of regular coconut water. Waiola is not made from a concentrate, and the serving size is small - you get lots of what you need and no extra filler! Here's more info on this great product - give it a try!
