Cigna employees at the North Phoenix office spun their wheels on stationery bikes at the Cigna Spin-a-thon to raise money for the March of Dimes. Every 20 to 30 minutes employees took shifts on bikes to raise money for the upcoming March of Dimes March for Babies event.
A total of 70 employees rode throughout the day while their co-workers cheered them on and donated money to the cause. Employees who donated money could have riders do sprints and increase resistance on their bikes. They could also donate money to have riders wear costumes while they ride. This is the third year employees organized the spin-a-thon.
Cigna has been a partner of the March of Dimes and a national sponsor of March for Babies for the past 23 years. Last year, Cigna was recognized by the March of Dimes as the top corporate fundraising team in Phoenix. Employees raised nearly $75,000 with approximately 200 participants. March for Babies is Saturday, April 8 at the Wesley Bolin Plaza in Phoenix.
