NANAIMO – Students help raise money for teacher Luke Begin's campaign for Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Blake Wood, right, and his Grade 8 classmate Wyatt Dorman prepare to join teacher Luc Begin on stationary bikes to fundraise for the fight against cancer at Nanaimo District Secondary School last week.

The day’s pedalling drew $2,015.90. Since 2007, staff and students at the school have raised more than $11,000 for the Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Begin will join hundreds of other cyclists for the ride, which follows a course from Vancouver to Seattle on Aug. 29-30.
