Students and staff at Mayfield Secondary School raised over $12,000 for multiple children's cancer charities. On March 23, Mayfield hosted The Inside Ride, an indoor cycling challenge for staff, students and community members, including Caledon firefighters and the Ontario Provincial Police.
At the event, attendees were divided into teams of six and competed in a variety of challenges while riding an exercise bike for the fundraiser. Each team raised a minimum of $300 with one team raising $1,2000.
The annual event is organized by the Mayfield Athletic Association. In the past 11 years, the school has raised over $150,000 for various charities.
The Inside Ride is presented by the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation and is "Canada's first indoor cycling challenge and fundraising event dedicated to raising money in support of children with cancer and their families."
