It's pedal to the metal for 24-hours at Fort High.
The Fort Saskatchewan High School kicked off their third annual Spinning for Smiles fundraiser in the gym at 9 a.m. on Friday (Mar.9).
"There's great energy here today. I'm super excited. I'm so proud of our students and community to come together for this great event for the Smiles for Spencer Foundation and we hope to raise a lot of money for a great cause and to have a great time," said principal Jeff Spady.
There will be a variety of activities and entertainment throughout the day including a local band, DJ, music, a slip and slide down the hallway, games and much more.
"The community is welcome to come in anytime, just sign in at the desk and hang out on our bleachers, we have community bikes they are welcome to ride and any donations is welcome at this time," said Spady.
The fundraiser winds down at 9 a.m. Saturday morning (Mar.10).
Donations can be made by visiting the school at 10002 97 Avenue or online.
Students and staff started preparing for this event in December. Last year, they raised more than $36,000.
Smiles from Spencer was founded in September 2010 by Tyson and Janna Turner, after their son Spencer fought a 13 month battle with brain cancer.
