Jim Bates, owner of Fresh Air, and Grant Delcourt from Delcourt Wealth Management at ScotiaMcLeod, are once again partnering to put on the YMCA’s 9th annual Cycle for Strong Kids coming up September 19 at the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre.
“This event was outstanding last year,” says Grant Delcourt. “Our team had a great time and felt more connected to our community through their involvement. We are a healthy office and are always looking for ways to be active and give back. YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids serves as a perfect opportunity and is a great team building event.”
For Jim Bates and his staff, cycling is a passion which each of them share. “This event is a chance to promote this passion, help local kids live healthier lives and encourage them to grow future interests of their own. We are proud to sponsor and participate again for 2015.”
Last year, 270 individuals registered for YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids, challenging themselves, and their teammates to an outdoor stationary cycling class for the charity’s Strong Kids Campaign. The day is full of fun with a kids zone, silent auction and food including tasty treats from Milestones.
Registration is currently open for this event with an early bird prize draw for a chance to win a Specialized Hybrid Sport Bike from Fresh Air if you register by July 31. “We are encouraging our community members to give the event a try,” says Pamela Murkin, YMCA Development Coordinator. “You don’t need to be an avid cycler to take part and there is no cost to register. Each participant will try to raise $250 which provides a child or youth an annual YMCA membership where they can be active and develop skills, confidence and self-esteem.”
Your participation in YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids will help support proven programs that give kids the opportunities they need to live healthier, happier lives now, but also to grow into productive adults. Sign up and give today to help build a better community for tomorrow.
