On Saturday, March 16, 2013, indoor cycling enthusiasts across the country are invited to join The Max Cure Foundation and Flywheel Sports for the first annual "Be Brave N' Fly" national cycling event to support MCF's missions of supporting pediatric cancer causes. The unprecedented event will take place at more than 10 Flywheel studios from New York to Seattle on more than 450 bikes. All participants who sign up to "Be Brave 'N Fly" will start and finish the class together, regardless of their location. Riders will help The Max Cure Foundation in their mission to advance cures for pediatric cancer by underwriting an immune cell therapy lab at Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center dedicated to children and young adults battling cancer. The Max Cure Foundation is registered in all states in the U.S. that require such registrations and provides financial assistance to low-income families in various communities who have a child with cancer and cannot afford the everyday necessities of life.

The unique partnership between The Max Cure Foundation and Flywheel is expected to raise significant awareness and financial support for pediatric cancer, the number one cause of death by disease among U.S. children between infancy and age 18. The indoor cycling leader will help bring awareness to the Foundation and the need for financial assistance of the low-income families that The Max Cure Foundation supports in key Flywheel markets including Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago Gold Coast, Dallas, Florida, Miami, Los Angeles, Englewood and Millburn New Jersey, Upper East Side New York City, Philadelphia and SLU Seattle.

"We are excited to partner with Flywheel and 'Roar for a Cure' with their team and ours at this amazing event," says David Plotkin, Chairman of The Max Cure Foundation. "This initiative will raise awareness and money to help develop less toxic, alternative ways to fight pediatric cancer. It will also assist low-income families who are truly in need of our support." "We are thrilled to support The Max Cure Foundation," says Jay Galluzzo, CEO and Co-Founder of Flywheel Sports. "This is a great opportunity for Flywheel to assist our local communities and the families that the Foundation supports throughout the country."

At the event, Hamptons Water Company, a supporter of The Max Cure Foundation, will hydrate all riders. Launched this past summer, The Hamptons Water Company gives five cents per bottle sold to the non-profit. Additionally, Pheel, a new women's fitness line will be designing a Pheel Brave line of women's workout attire specifically for The Max Cure Foundation and this event, with a substantial portion of the proceeds benefiting the charity.

All rides will begin at 2:00 pm EST / 1:00 pm CST and 11:00 am PST on Saturday, March 16, 2013. For those unable to attend the event but would like to make a donation, please visit maxcure.org or text "ROAR" to 50555 to donate $10.00 for pediatric cancer. Please visit http://www.maxcure.org
