Rumpelstiltskin would be proud.

Much like the dwarfish fairy tale creature who spun gold out of straw, a group of socially conscious fitness enthusiasts spun off a truckload of clothes earlier this month for an Edmonton charity.0064

It was all part of the Spin Off Your Clothes fundraiser hosted by Infinite Fitness in the Riverbend Square parking lot (Terwillegar Drive and Rabbit Hill Road).

As 10 teams of stationary cyclists proved their mettle on the pedals for 12 hours, the fitness centre accepted donations of cash, gently used clothes and household items for the Bissell Centre.

No word on the cash donations, but Infinite Fitness co-owner Jessica Zapata says the inaugural spin-a-thon “went AMAZING!! We filled the entire truck from top to bottom!!”

Good job!
