The 2017 RIDE-WALK-A-THON was a great success!

This year's ride-walk-a-thon celebrated 15 years along with Canada turning 150.
7 riders, 23 walkers and 8 attendees were sponsored by family, friends, teachers, hairdressers, co-workers, neighbours, and whomever else they could think of, raising a grand total of $3,500.00! In the week leading up to the ride our program riders enjoyed completing an obstacle course in the arena festooned with Canadian flags.

Special thanks to Country Grocer for donating a gift card for food served at the event, Laughing Daughter for the delicious gluten free cookies, Embe Bakery for donating beautiful carrot cake, Wes for the barbequing and set up, Sarah, Elsa and Rory for setting up, chopping and cleaning, April for helping create 15th Anniversary logo and taking pictures, and to all the sponsors.

Proud to be a Canadian, Blessed to live in Canada!
