I am about to do a shameless plug, for a GREAT cause. Two years ago, I joined my uncle (and two cousins) on a day during his ride from Victoria to Thunder Bay to raise money for YMCA Strongkids Campaign. here we are eating doughnut's at Tim Hortons.
And he believes in the fight against childhood obesity. SO, this year he is raising the bar from riding only 1/2 way, to riding the whole way across Canada. He is starting in Horseshoe Bay on Monday, and will be averaging over 200km/day (WTF!??! CRAZY!), to arrive in St John's, NL on July 22nd.
His website is here, at ykids.blog.com. Please follow his blog (he is pretty funny!), and donate to the local YMCA!!!! (if you are not in Canada, feel free to donate to the Vancouver YMCA!) and re-share on your TWITTER, Facebook, and blog!!!
