Presented by Ashton Whited and Shawn Stockman from the legendary R&B group Boyz II Men, and hosted by Hollywood DJ Orator and former NBA star Cedric Ceballos, the Beatbike Launch Party benefits Micah's Voice, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established by Shawn and Sharhonda Stockman.  Micah's Voice helps provide community, hope and financial resources for families affected by autism.

"One of the Stockman's twin sons, Micah, was diagnosed with autism at an early age and they realize the financial burden families are experiencing," said Vertical Wellness owner Shanna Israel.   "Although research is very important, Micah's Voice is focused on the present situation and has a deep concern for families dealing with autism.  Events like the Beatbike Launch Party help support these families and bring awareness to the effects of autism."

The Beatbike event is expected to attract a wide variety of attendees, including celebrities.  Some of the dozens of celebrities invited to this event include Kyle Massey, James Lesure, Joey Fatone, Dean Cain, Drew Kenny, Rob Kardashian, Nick Lachey, Common, Cedric Ceballos and Jamie Foxx.

Beatbike is a 4,500 square foot oasis within the city.  The facility offers participants an organic juice bar, posh lounge areas, a beautiful outdoor patio, WIFI, and private bathrooms, showers and vanities.  A state-of-the-art sound system plays the latest music during the 45-minute immersion classes. These workouts simulate a real road ride, with a power-packed playlist and top level instructors to push participants physically, mentally and spiritually.

In addition to the event's sponsorship, Vertical Wellness will also collaborate with Stockman to create a new section called "Shawn Stockman's Favorites" in their Autism Spectrum BeWell Boutique. This section will showcase Shawn's favorite products and the items that have helped their family navigate Micah's journey, as well as exclusive videos, interviews, and tips. All proceeds from the section will be donated to the Micah's Voice charity.
