More than 150 participants came out and helped raise over $20,000 at the 2nd annual UPS for DownS charity spin-a-thon at Midtown Athletic Club in Palatine on March 3.
All proceeds benefitted UPS for DownS, a northwest suburban-based nonprofit which offers support, education and encouragement for parents, families and others who love and care about persons with Down syndrome.

"Midtown is grateful for having the opportunity to host this great event," said Fitness Director Stacey Nowak, whose 13-year-old nephew has Down syndrome and was among the youngsters on hand who cheered along cyclists during the four-hour event. "This event supported an organization near and dear to my heart as well as to the hearts of many living in and around the Palatine area who are affected by Down syndrome."
