ABOUT ICYCLE - Located outside at One International Place in Boston, ICycle is a series of stationary spin bike classes held outdoors in the middle of winter! Every hour on the hour beginning at 7:00 AM, different teams will ride to raise money for HomeStart, a nonprofit committed to ending and preventing homelessness in Greater Boston. This unique event also raises awareness about the growing problem of homelessness, and how especially tough it is in the winter!
Last year over 300 riders raised over $220,000.00, which made a tremendous impact in the lives of those we serve. Riders included local celebrities, media personnel, and sports mascots, and there was music, food, and more! This year will be bigger and better, so don’t miss this unique, fun opportunity to give back!
GET YOUR COMPANY & FRIENDS INVOLVED - It’s a great way to raise money for HomeStart and a great team-building event!
SPONSOR AN HOUR - Bring up to 35 co-workers and/or friends to ride at the same hour, each pledging to raise $350, and that hour will be named after your team. This includes signage for the hundreds to thousands of passerbys, mention in the media, social media & online advertising, advertising on t-shirts & other paraphernalia, and much more.
SPONSOR PART OF AN HOUR - Bring up to 15 co-workers and/or friends to ride at the same hour with another team. This includes XL signage for the hundreds to thousands of passerbys, mention in the media, social media & online advertising, advertising on t-shirts & other paraphernalia, and much more.
The minimum to ride is $350, but it costs HomeStart $700 to prevent a family from homelessness & $1,030 to move a family out of a shelter and into a permanent home. So if you raise $1,030.00, you will be the reason a family is no longer homeless!
General Sponsorship - Signage for the day, a table for part of the day, and more is available. Just contact HomeStart for more details.
