A 24-hour fitness challenge has seen 980 kilometres exercised in support of the Mount Isa PCYC.
Held by Isa Rodeo Queen Quest entrant Aimee Sewell, the challenge was designed to promote and showcase the facilities, services and programs that Mount Isa PCYC offer to the community.
Ms Sewell said the event was completed by 18 members in teams.
"We had three registered teams Chafing Team, Radical Radford and Lynchy's Legends all taking turns to keep their piece of equipment going for the required time period," she said.
"Chaffing Teams walked 168kms, Radical Radfords rode 320kms and Lynchy's Legends rode 460kms.
"Kim Lynch rode an amazing 340km individually in eight hours."
Ms Sewell said participants included police officers, teachers, mines workers and students.
"The entire Clauson family participated including nine-year-old Jack who was cheerleader and emergency back up," she said.
"The event incorporated a fitness class from 8am to 10am, before moving onto cardio equipment such as treadmills, rower and stationary bikes for the remaining 22 hours.
"This event demonstrates that the PCYC offers value gym membership in Mount Isa, where by being a member you have the ability to give back to community."
Ms Sewell said raising money for PCYC ensured that all funds stay locals to assist the local community.
"This year we have confirmed that the funds raised the Queen Quest will be utilised for bus leases," she said.
"We understanding that a major barrier to participation in events is transportation or access. With additional buses used for transport we have the capacity to engage with more young people and their families.
"The buses are also available for hire to members of the community for function or events."
