Sky across Canada

Sunday, June 22 - Everyone is invited for a group ride from Canmore to Calgary to benefit The Children's Wish Foundation.

This summer, Sky Mitchell will be riding her bicycle from Victoria, British Columbia to St. John’s, Newfoundland to raise awareness and money for the Children’s Wish Foundation. The Children’s Wish Foundation works with the community to provide children living with high-risk, life threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish. The two and a half month ride will begin on June 1st 2008 from Victoria. Sky will be accompanied by a support vehicle driven by Tory Farr.

Here's a great way for cyclists to get involved in this leg of Sky’s ride. There will be a group ride leaving Canmore (location TBD) on Sunday, June 22, at 9:00am. Cyclists of all abilities are encouraged to join Sky as she cycles into Calgary. Everyone will cycle to the Talisman Centre for a tasty BBQ with great music and a silent auction in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation.

Tony Smith has room for 5 passengers (and bikes) and will be leaving the Talisman Centre at 7a.m. on the 22nd for Canmore. Each rider will be asked to make a minimum $50 donation on behalf of Sky for the foundation. Email if you're interested.
