The Marine Industry Cares Foundation's fourth annual Spin-a-Thon, held recently at South Florida’s Esplanade Park, raised about $150,000 for the Children's Diagnostic and Treatment Center and Kids in Distress, organizers said.

Sixty teams kept their spin bikes moving non-stop for the six-hour event.

The Marine Industry Cares Foundation mobilizes the maritime community to benefit children and families in need. Founded in 2010 by marine industry leaders in South Florida who were motivated to make a difference in their city, the foundation seeks to build a lasting relationship between the marine industry and the local community.
