Get fit and fight cancer

Seventy stationary bikes for spinning will be used to help find a cure for cancer.
”Our job is to raise money, and we’ll spin to get the job done,” said Jay Stone, general manager of Metamorphecise Spa, Salon & Health Club in Pembroke Pines.
The spa at 111 Grand Palms Dr., owned by Miramar resident and fitness expert Lisa Dwoskin-Woityra, will host a Oct. 17 nighttime spin-a-thon for the Braman Family Breast Cancer Institute at the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Dwoskin-Woityra said she was inspired by her father’s Dwoskin Family Foundation, which has given $1 million since 2003 to the cancer center for lymphoma research. But she was driven to action by her mother’s recent diagnosis of breast cancer.
”It makes me happy to make my mother happy,” Dwoskin-Woityra said.
So far, 20 spinners are signed up and $10,000 has been raised.
Personal fitness instructor, bodybuilder and model Anna Level will lead the spin-a-thon. Spinners from other health clubs, such as Fitness 21, may turn out for what could be a fitness showdown.
The cost? A $50 donation or the same in pledges. The theme: “Supporting the fighters, admiring the survivors, honoring the taken, never ever giving up hope.”
Dwoskin-Woityra said the four-hour outdoor event also will include a free health and fitness fair with about 40 vendors, a Chinese auction featuring high-dollar gifts, and hobnobbing with glitz-and-glamour celebrities.
Guests can graze for $10 a person at a buffet of high-energy fun foods. Stone said the entire event, with belly dancers, hip-hop performers, a bounce house for kids and tunes spun by South Beach DJ Maximus 3000, will amount to a huge community party.
”Coming together for a common cause is cause for celebration,” Stone said.
The spin-a-thon will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 17 at Metamorphecise Spa, 111 Grand Palms Dr., Pembroke Pines. Call 954-450-5535. ”
