On February 17th, International Place hosted the annual iCycle Stationary Bike Marathon. iCycle is a series of intense spin classes held outdoors during the winter months. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness for homelessness as well as money for HomeStart, Inc., an organization committed to ending and preventing homelessness. 

HomeStart, Inc. assists homeless adults and families in Greater Boston with the process of locating affordable permanent housing. Individuals are assisted one-on-one with obtaining private apartments, government subsidized housing and room housing units. iCycle raises money for HomeStart's innovative housing search assistance, eviction prevention advocacy, and stabilizing wrap-around supportive services that work to help neighbors in crisis regain and maintain a stable home - safe affordable housing connected to a community of support.

The event was held outside at the Fort Hill Square Plaza area and lasted for approximately 12 hours. International Place gives great appreciation to the brave participants and warmly thanks everyone who provided their support and donations!
