Nanaimo Athletic Club is calling on anyone who enjoys spending time just spinning their wheels.

The club is hosting a 24-hour Spin-A-Thon Oct. 15-16 in support of Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Starting 5 a.m. Oct. 15, teams and individuals can ride power-generating spinning bikes under the guidance of spinning instructors, enjoy refreshments and be eligible for prizes.

Participants can reserve their time slot with the club’s receptionist at 250-716-1111. Pledges can be by straight donation, or determined by the amount of wattage a rider produces while spinning.

All proceeds go toward the purchase of specialized chemotherapy chairs for the NRGH cancer clinic.

Nanaimo Athletic Club is at 1451 Bowen Rd., behind the Quarterway Pub.
