Elgin Park students raise $48,000 for PAH

South Surrey students' CYCLE4:ER fundraiser supports Peace Arch Hospital emergency room.

Students at Elgin Park Secondary peddled their way into raising more than $48,000 for the Peace Arch Hospital emergency room with their CYCLE4:ER fundraiser.

Funds from the June 5th event have been tallied and will be used to purchase a bariatric stretch ($10,000), two vital sign monitors ($10,000, plus partial funding for a third), a crash cart ($3,500), a motorized IV pole ($2,500) and a stimulator for intubation practise ($15,000).

The 21 leadership students responsible for the event welcomed more than 700 participants to the non-stop 12-hour spin – including teams of students, medical personnel and business leaders – who spun the wheels on their stationary bikes from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
