WHAT'S WITH THE WEATHER FORECAST?
'Dare To Bare' is a rain or shine event (you'll be wet from sweat so NBD) but we're sending out all the positive vibes that the sun will shine down upon us on Sunday. And we could use your happy sun vibes too!
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VIP AND GENERAL ADMISSION (FOR SOULCYCLE REGISTRATION)?
Everyone is a VIP in our eyes! But for those of you that want an exclusive experience while all while championing our mission through fundraising, VIP participants who raise $2,000 and over receive:
- Access to a special VIP area at the event that includes lunch, beverages and light snacks throughout the day
- Open bar at our "Beer Garden" at Union Square's premier restaurant, The Pavilion
- Exclusive VIP swag including Sweaty Betty's new Power Leggings, a Movemeant Foundation gift bag and more
- Priority check in and priority seating during your SoulCycle class
- Photo and social recognition as a major donor including meet and greets with special guests and our line-up of fitness instructors
- Recognition on our MOVERS wall on the Movemeant Foundation website -- our online tribute to our major donors
- Access to exclusive playlists, fitness tips and advice from your favorite 'Dare To Bare' instructors
DO I SELECT MY BIKE FOR THE SOULCYCLE CLASS?
There's no bad seat in the house when you're tapping it back in the middle of Union Square Park with your favorite SoulCycle instructors, but priority seating is given to those who are active in their fundraising efforts. You'll receive your bike assignments when you check in at the door on Sunday, October 2nd!
CLASSES AND ACTIVITIES
This is your chance to test drive and try out a ton of new classes with some of our favorite boutique studios and trainers from around the city. It is required that you register for a ticket to any of the programs for which you plan to attend.
I'm signed up for a SoulCycle class. Do I need to fundraise? Yes. You are required to fundraise in order to ride. Our SoulCycle classes require both a registration fee and a fundraising commitment of either $350 for General Admission to $2,000 for VIP Admission to participate.
I would like to register for SoulCycle, Yoga and Barre. Do I have to purchase a ticket for each class? Yes. Each class requires registration and payment in order to participate. Each dollar earned through registration goes to the development of life-changing health and fitness programs for young girls across the country.
WHAT DO I GET WHEN I REGISTER?
Thanks to the generosity of London's leading premium women's activewear brand, Sweaty Betty, each registrant receives a 'Dare To Bare' branded Sweaty Betty Infinity Workout Sports Bra (featured in the inset to the left, value of $65; limit one per person, even if registering for multiple classes) to wear to the event. You'll also receive a complimentary gift bag filled with everything you need, from snacks and sunglasses to water and more, for a memorable day working out with your #fitfam.
VIP SoulCycle Riders will also receive a pair of Sweaty Betty leggings designed with high stretch fabric, thoughtfully-placed hems and bold patterns that amp up your unique style. (See styles in the left inset.)

FOOD AND DRINKS
We're rolling in celebrity chef and author of Street Vegan, Adam Sobel in his highly-popular food truck Cinnamon Snail. Get vegan donuts and pastries in the morning, then fuel up with a delicious lunch of salads, wraps and more. Then join us on the patio of The Pavilion restaurant for a celebratory cocktail at our beer garden (open to 21 years old and over). The beer garden is open for VIPs from 10 am - 3 pm for complementary beverages; for general admission from 1 pm - 3 pm as a cash bar.
As with any fitness class, you want to stay well-hydrated and well-fed. It’s advisable that you eat a light snack 30 minutes before your workout and have a snack afterwards to refuel those muscles! For SoulCycle riders at the VIP level, you’ll be provided with pre-ride snacks and a light lunch for after you rock that bike.
