  Feb 03 2021 . 9250 163 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5R 0A7, Canada

Last year, we were able to raise 135,000.00$ during our BikeAthon.  This year, since we are not able to gather as a collective for a 24-hour bike, we are reimagining our event.  We are challenging our students to "Race Around the World March 15-March 19".  Students will track their kilometersthrough a fitness app and we hope to reach the school goal of 40,075km in five days. We will be having a series of virtual events that students can join to get active and earn kilometers. We hope this focus on movement and focused leadership will support our students' own mental health while making great social impact. We are competing against AOB and Romero.
