Accompanied by student teacher Sophia Le, Grade 1 student Soren Persson (right) biked loops with other primary students around Sinkut View Elementary’s playground course on June 8 to help fundraise for IDIDALAP for Cancer.
It’s the first year for Sinkut View to use mountain biking for the campaign — four lunch time sessions in June. Advanced riders – including 17 students and two to three adults are completing loops of four to 4.5 kilometres, while younger riders are completing 300-metre loops for an average of 20 metres per ride as a group.
So far, students have rode about 450 kilometres, hitting numerous jumps, and climbing over 200 metres. The fundraising campaign finished on June 14.
