Two young BMX bike racers have raised double the money they did last year in their first foray into fundraising.
Taylor, 12, and Tianna, 8, Fretz collected $3,600 this year as part of the Ride for Life effort on behalf of the BC Childrens Hospital.
The siblings started raising money after a rider they knew died of leukemia.
“We raised this money so that one day, kids can get out of the hospital,” said Taylor.
“Every penny counted,” added Tianna.
The pair thank the community for its help and are going to try to raise $4,000 next year.
