On April 10, students at Seaquam Secondary in North Delta held a spin-a-thon to raise funds for new equipment for their school fitness centre and for the Laura Szendrei Memorial Scholarship.

Students collected pledges and then used stationary bikes to spin their hearts out. The event was a huge success and $2,937 was raised.

From the total, $500.00 was donated to the Laura Szendrei Memorial Scholarship fund. Szendrei, 15, was killed in a 2011 attack.
