A great fathers day weekend: KGM Bikethon


Mitch, my 12 year old son, started the Father’s Day weekend out in a very special way.   We rode together on the Kelowna Gospel Mission 30 km Bikeathon.    We finished together and were part of the highest donation team FormaShape and Mitch won for highest fund raising youth and due to incredible support from those who know me and the few emails the event recognized me for top fundraiser.

Way to go Barb, Matthew, Audrey, Peggy and Mitch !!!!

 

What a great start to the fathers day weekend.    The river was flowing, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping and the company along the trail was spectacular.   The other corporate Teams from Kelowna Flight Craft created by Mike Rowley, people like Brent King and Craig Burns, the wonderful team from FormaShape, Barb, Audrey, Matthew, Peggy, Mitch.

Very fun…   and special thanks to all those who donated to the incredible Kelowna Gospel Mission cause for transitional housing.

“Over 100 cyclists laced their way through the Mission Park Greenway Saturday, raising donations for the purchase of a men’s transition home.

The 30K Club Bikeathon, which is in it’s third year, has previously raised money for three other local recovery and transition homes.

Started by the Kelowna Gospel Mission, the 30K club currently operates the Shiloh House, Harmony Home and Destiny House.

Ami Catriona, Kelowna Gospel Mission marketing and communications officer, says last year alone, 165 men and women were able to access proper affordable housing.

“It’s really important that when people are going through a rough patch, they have a stable home. It’s your fundamentals,” Catriona says.

“You’ve got to start with a roof over your head.”
