Tracey Zehl is one the Spinners at the inaugural Spin For Life event on November 21, 2020! Each participant (once they reach a fundraising minimum of $250) gets one hour on a bike while we collectively attempt to Spin around the world in just one day. All donations go to support the Canadian Cancer Society. You can help by donating to her campaign and/or cheering her on at the event.

Why I’m Spinning:

I am spinning in this event because cancer continues to devastate my family and my friends in so many ways, often ending in heartbreak. In the month of September 2020, I have lost 6 people in my circle to cancer.

I have watched many brave souls, from small children to elders, fight this battle with a fierceness and determination. My hope is that more of those people can say “I kicked Cancer right in the butt and I am a survivor!”

In an effort to turn this hope into reality, I am participating in this historic event to truly Spin to Save Lives. Please join me in my fight!!!

Who I’m Spinning For:

I am spinning for those who have passed – my sister, my aunt, our close family friends, some co-workers, some friends, some friends’ family members; those who have beat cancer and are living a cancer free life; and those who will be impacted. We all share in this devastation in one form or another so it’s time to make it end!

Spin For Life values inclusion and removing barriers to entry for participation; any skill level, beginner to pro, is encouraged to join. There’s no need for any special equipment or gear – alongside 180 spin bikes, Spin For Life is equipped with low-impact floor and arm pedal machines. Spinners are in a controlled indoor environment where the risk is low, medical support is always close-at-hand, and the weather won’t affect the experience. Our participants’ physical and fundraising commitments are also designed to be manageable challenges: one hour of sweat with a minimum $1,000 raised for charity.


Thanks to our growing list of like-minded sponsors and patrons, 100% of donations stay with the Canadian Cancer Society. With each event, Spin For Life aims to raise a minimum of $1.44 million with new host cities being added every year for a ten year goal of $180 million. Tax receiptable donations can be allocated to any of three categories: Clinical Trials, Wheels of Hope, or the Alberta Cancer Research Fund (which was specially created to be funded by Spin For Life). Even in our first year, we are aiming to break the World Record for most money raised with a static cycling event.


Over the course of eight hours, our Spinners will collectively ride the circumference of the world: 40,075 km. Each hour is themed around distinct global landscapes with LED screens, theatre lighting, and mapped projections transporting participants through a beautiful, challenging, and cathartic experience. Emcees and Instructors will lead the music-filled Spin Hours, introducing stories of cancer heroes, researchers, clinicians, and remembrances of those we have lost. All culminating in a world record ceremony and on-site after party when we finish spinning around the globe!
