Pedals for Hope is a bicycle ride that raises funds to fight cancer. The eighth-grade students collect pledges for how many miles they ride as well as writing to local businesses for donations. Companies who participated in donating $100 or more get their logo on the back of the T-shirts, designed by the students, which they wear during the bike ride. All of the money raised goes to Huntsman Cancer Institute for cancer research.
