CPAWS Fundraiser: Spin Around the Clock!

Apr 3 2010 - 12:00am to Apr 4 2010 - 12:00am

Work off those chocolate bunny calories ahead of time, while supporting CPAWS!

CPAWS Northern Alberta is assembling a team of people to participate in the Livia Stoyke Foundation's 24-hour Spin fundraiser. The Foundation provides vital support to a variety of causes (women, children, poverty relief, the arts and the environment) and to organizations like CPAWS.

What 's involved?

Sign up to a cycling shift on the CPAWS bike (for any number of hours), and commit to obtaining at least $20 in pledges (CPAWS will subsidize $30 of the $50 registration fee).  During the event at West Edmonton Mall, you can check out an array of bands and performers, cycle your shift, enjoy tasty food, and enter into a draw for cool prizes - like a 1 week rental of a deluxe houseboat.
