What is the
It’s an easy, fun and creative way to make a difference! You simply select or invent a way to spin… video your spin for 7-10 seconds… make a small donation here… then forward your video to family, friends, teammates, and co-workers, letting everyone know that you’re “spinning to save kids”!
Your donation will help the “Institute for Advanced Clinical Trials for Children” (I-ACT) protect our kids. I-ACT is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization exclusively dedicated to advancing and accelerating Children’s Clinical Trials!
How or What
Here are some fun ways (and objects!) to consider:
Wheels… cycling, biking, riding, skateboarding!
Balls… basketballs, footballs, baseballs, volleyballs!
Sports… skating, cheerleading, gymnastics, wrestling!
Dance… modern, jazz, ballroom, ballet!
Kids Games… Frisbee, hula hoop, yo-yo’s, tire swings!
Anything goes… make it up or build it and spin… challenge your family, friends, teammates and co-workers to spin, too… and make a small donation to support
I-ACT’s critical work on behalf of children!
When to Spin?
Spin in January, spin in February… or spin on Friday, March 3rd, Saturday, March 4th, or Sunday, March 5th, when scores of pediatricians, pediatric nurses, pediatric social workers and others who care deeply about children will visit Disney World to call attention to the need to advance Children’s Clinical Trials by riding Disney’s Spinning Tea Cups for 3 days, during which time they will establish the world record for continuous, compassionate spinning! In addition to challenging pediatricians, bio-pharma companies, clinical research organizations and others involved in advancing Children’s Clinical Trials, they will also challenge you!
