An indoor spinning event now in its 8th year, Pedaling 4 Paige is a great way to put your physical, mental and emotional energy towards something much bigger: Raise funds to fight pediatric cancer in Central New York.
Pedaling 4 Paige will have a virtual event option and live event option. There will only be 28 bikes available for each live session at Elevate Fitness in Dewitt. Register online to spin for 1 hour in honor of children and families who have been touched by a diagnosis of pediatric cancer and other blood disorders. Participants can register for one or up to all four 1 hour sessions led by a cycling instructor.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Dr. William J. Waters Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital, Syracuse, New York.
When you register to participate in Pedaling 4 Paige, you are committed to a fundraising minimum. Participants have until April 1, 2023 to reach (or exceed!) their minimum. Every dollar raised stays right here in Central New York and provides hope to the hundreds of local families who are fighting pediatric cancer at the Dr. William J. Waters Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
Participants receive access to fundraising resources including a personalized fundraising page, email templates, as well as the support of PBR staff.
In 1993, Paige Yeomans Arnold was a seemingly healthy 6 year old first grader at Palmer Elementary School in Baldwinsville NY, when she was diagnosed with leukemia. Paige was then treated at what is now the Dr. William J. Waters Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse NY. Paige ultimately underwent a bone marrow transplant in an effort to cure her leukemia at Boston Children’s Hospital in 1994. Sadly, complications from the transplant led to her death in August of that year.
In the Spring of 1997, Paige’s parents were approached by a group of teachers at Palmer Elementary that wished to honor Paige in what would have been her last year at the school. In short order, it was decided that a walk\run event would be organized. All proceeds were slated to benefit a college scholarship fund and the Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders in Paige’s memory. The butterfly was selected as a symbol of the event not only because she was so fond of them, but because they typified her: beautiful and gentle, but strong beyond imagining.
After hosting the event from 1997-2007 at Palmer Elementary, Paige’s Butterfly Run came to downtown Syracuse in 2008 with the Taste of Syracuse Festival.
Since its inception in 1997, Paige’s Butterfly Run has raised over $4,500,000 to support cancer research and patient programs at the William J. Waters Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
