Cyclists reach record high in Wausau fundraiser

WAUSAU (WAOW) - In Wausau indoor cyclists set a fundraising record during a marathon workout session on Sunday.

Participants raised more than $14,000 at the Woodson YMCA's Pedal it Forward fundraiser.

That's the most money raised in the event's seven year history.

The riders collected pledges to ride in the three hour indoor cycling event.

"We try to give it toward swimming lessons and camp and those programs that really make an impact developing the youth of our community," said Melissa Matteson, the event coordinator.

Organizers say more than 80 people participated.
