Some members of EBTC cycle to fundraise for various charities. Here are some that you may choose to participate in or donate to:
Cycle for Mom for the Alzheimer’s Society
EBTC members Terry Fannon, Rob Strashok and Arlette Peterson plus friend Steve Johnsen completed Cycle for Mom for Alzheimer’s Society on June 28/21 (yes in the heat!). We cycled 108 km starting in Breton, AB at 7:30AM (to beat the heat) and 5.5 hours later completed it at 31degrees C. We are trying to raise $10,000 to support the Alzheimer’s Society and there is still time for you to contribute to help us reach this goal.
To remind you of the need: over 46,000 Albertans (over 500,000 Canadians) and their families live with dementia (Alzheimer’s patients the largest number), debilitating diseases resulting in loss of memory and connectedness and need for close care by family members and professionals. Alzheimer’s Society funds research at Alberta universities and provides support groups for persons living with dementia and their caregivers.
