Heather Buda

AXL Studios • 9:15 AM

Heather Buda is an instructor at AXL Studios. She first got into spinning as a cross-training exercise when she was marathon training. Spinning helped her knock 30 minutes off her PR, build friendships, and cultivate a community.

Why I PMC: "In 2011, one of the kindest souls was taken from this earth. She was my Great Aunt Barb, who was more like an aunt to me, and a proud woman who battled cancer on her own because she did not want to worry her loved ones. I am honored to teach a class for the PMC and Dana-Farber in her memory. And if any wind blows that day, I will know Barb is with us."

Why I PMC: "I'm truly honored to be back again with the PMC for the 2023 Winter Cycle. I didn't realize the lasting impact this event would have on me. Boston is a city of resilience and the day we spend at the PMC Winter Cycle is just a snapshot of the strength of the patients, survivors, nurses, doctors, and surviving loved ones who walk our city every day. To bring passion for cycling to help a cause bigger than us all is where the magic happens."

Why I PMC: "Like many people, I've dealt with multiple family members who have battled cancer. Partaking in an event that brings together a community's common interest to battle cancer and fund research is something I would love to partake in. Being able to join in PMC's mission of fundraising money for cancer research and treatment is important to me, as it helps is incredibly meaningful to me. It means supporting and fighting for those who need our strength and fight. Fostering community through a shared goal is wonderful in itself, but adding a joyous cycle class is the cherry on top."
