Inside Ride fundraiser comes to W. J. Mouat Secondary

Abbotsford school holds indoor-cycling event on Wednesday, April 18

An event next week at W. J. Mouat Secondary in Abbotsford will raise money for the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program, which funds the oncology fellowship program at BC Children’s Hospital.

The Inside Ride fundraiser takes place Wednesday, April 18 at 1 p.m. The event involves teams of six cycling on stationary bikes. Team members take turns riding for 10 minutes each.

Medals are handed out at 2:30 p.m. for teams and individuals with the best mileage, fundraising, spirit and costume.

Each participant is required to raise a minimum of $50 each before the event.

The event has previously involved students from Mouat, Yale Secondary, Abbotsford Senior Secondary and MEI, but it is hoped that even more schools participate this year. Last year, the event raised more than $12,000. This year’s goal is $20,000.

The fundraiser is presented by W. J. Mouat Secondary in partnership with the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation.
