SWEAT Gives Back 24 Hour Charity Ride

sweat gives back 2019


We crushed our goal. Hundreds participated. Over $11k raised. You did PAWESOME!


On May 18th, we’re holding a live, 24-hour charity Spinning® event in support of Paws’itive Teams – an amazing local organization that raises, trains and places service dogs with San Diegans in need.  facebook logo  Click Here to RSVP on Facebook Now!   

Last year, we raised over $12,500 for Isaac Coulapides, a local San Diego teenager paralyzed in a traffic accident.

Thanks to the generosity of our world-wide and local communities, Paws’itive Teams was able to place Monty, an energetic golden lab trained to serve with Isaac – giving Isaac a better quality of life, hope for the future and a warm, fuzzy friend.


Meet Duncan: Paws’itive Team’s latest recruit! Duncan is a rambunctious little black lab, with boundless energy and a heart of gold. He’s the perfect candidate to become a service animal one day.

But for that to happen, Duncan needs a full two years of intensive training with two very qualified professionals: Elaine, a Navy veteran who’s devoted her life to helping others, and Duncan’s own furry mentor, Monty!

That’s where we come in – the cost of training a service dog can run in the tens of thousands. Our goal is $10,000, so that little Duncan can be placed with a San Diegan who really, truly needs him.

Tips and Tricks for Live Streaming

  • Streaming through a laptop or computer is best, due to some mobile devices not supporting the player.
  • If no video is playing, refresh the browser and click the play button on the player.
  • If player freezes/becomes “Offline” during live streaming: Refresh your browser. It should reset and begin streaming again.
  • Update Browser: Use an up-to-date version of Firefox or Chrome. One benefit of Chrome is that it already has Adobe Flash installed by default, which you will need.
  • Install and Update Adobe Flash: Go here and follow the steps outlined on that page to make sure that you have an up-to-date version of Adobe Flash Player installed. Do this on the same computer and browser that you are trying to watch the live stream on.
  • Check Internet Connection and Bandwidth: You can only watch a live stream if you have a consistent internet connection. Shared wi-fi networks, like what you might find at a coffee shop, are often too unreliable to view a live stream without interruption. It is recommended to view on the best possible connection you can find.You can run a speedtest here to determine your download speed. It can be helpful to run the test several times to see if you are getting consistent download speeds.  To view an 720/HD stream, you need download speeds at around 1.5-2Mbps.When possible, plugging in via an ethernet cable can help you avoid the possibility of an inconsistent wireless connection.
  • Check Computer Resources: A possible cause of choppiness or pausing playback is insufficient CPU resources. It is recommended to shut down all other applications and browser tabs / windows while viewing if you are experiencing playback problems.
  • Reload Browser: If the stream freezes for more than 5 seconds, try reloading the browser.
