PHOTO: Biking Everest in Kamloops

Dr. Lennard Pretorius (left) was joined by groups of supporters on Saturday as he did the Everesting Challenge in a bid to raise money for Royal Inland Hospital

The challenge for Pretorius was to bike up and down Highland Drive 65 times, which amounts to 8,848 metres — equivalent to the height of Mount Everest.

As of Tuesday, Pretorius had raised more than $6,000 for the hospital.

You can donate through Thursday at the Canada Helps website.
