CPAM had the great fortune to be selected by 4 individuals that
took their annual ride and added a fundraiser component. The Cerebral Palsy Association would like to
recognize the generosity of those who donated and to Dean, Greg, Bryan & Kevin for partnering with us.
When is the Ride?
The ride will take place on Saturday, September 12th, and
is from Clearwater Bay on Lake of the Woods to Kenora and back.
What is the History of the Ride?
The first 100 km bike ride was organized by Dean Keating and
took place in the summer of 2007 on the portion of the Trans Canada Trail that goes through Winnipeg.
It was organized with a few friends who wanted to exercise during the summer, and then culminate the
cycling with a longer ride and dinner afterwards. It was decided in 2013 to add a fundraising component
to the annual ride. We wanted to see the funds we raised used locally, so we chose to work with the
Cerebral Palsy Association of Manitoba and Freedom Concepts, a local business that manufactures bicycles
for children & adults with special needs. Last years 100 km ride started south of Beausejour, Mb.,
and followed Hwy #12 north to Gull Lake, and then on to Pine Falls. We have been able to raise over
$9000.00 in two years, enough money to present a new bicycle each year. Dean Keating, Greg Macaulay,
Bryan Toews, Kevin Turner would like to recognize the generosity of those that donated to this great cause.
