Sponsored Ride !!

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of British Columbia and Yukon grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

The sponsored ride contributing to the Make a Wish Foundation on Sunday May 25th was a success. The 15 participating riders collected a total of $1,681 for the cause--not bad for a first try! The ride ended with a barbecue at Dina Popadiuk's place. The weather couldn't have been better.
