Seaqaum Secondary School in North Delta is hosting its first annual Seaquam Spin-a-thon in April.

The event has been organized to help raise money for the new fitness loft facility inside the school and a portion of the proceeds will also go towards the Laura Szendrei Scholarship Foundation.

Szendrei, a former student at North Delta's Burnsview Secondary, died after being attacked in Mackie Park near 110 Street and 82 Avenue in 2010. The young man who killed her, Wyatt DeBruin, was sentenced to life in prison in 2013.

The school not only hopes to raise money for its new facility and scholarship in Szendrei's honor, it also wants to promote lifelong physical activity within the Seaquam community.

Students and teachers will form teams and attempt to spin for 80 kilometers as a team in the five hours allotted.

In addition to students raising money through donations, the school is also looking for local companies to provide sponsorship in any capacity. If you are interested in being a part of this event please contact Dara Connolly or Amy Serres at Seaquam Secondary at 604-591-6166.

The spin-a-thon takes place on Thursday, April 10 from 3-8 p.m. at Seaquam Secondary's gymnasium, 11584 Lyon Rd.
