Please save the dates Friday July 26th – Sunday July 28th for Ride To Reach 2019.
This years’ Ride to Reach will take place July 26th-28th to mark the 9th annual ride making a difference in our communities. The ride will begin on the 26th in beautiful Kamloops, B.C. with a breakfast kick-off event. We will ride from Kamloops to Valemont on the 26th and to Jasper and Golden on the 27th, arriving back in Kamloops on the 28th. Ride to Reach has group bookings for hotels, which can be found at https://www.awayhomekamloops.com/hotels
Registration is now live online and can be found at https://www.awayhomekamloops.com/ride-to-reach-2019 . The registration cost is $75 and includes a t-shirt and the Celebration Dinner on the 27th. You will also receive a tax receipt for $55 for your contribution towards Safe Suites for kids. We encourage all riders to help raise pledges for your ride, which can be shared through the online portal through social media and email. There is also an option to print a pdf version of the pledge sheet if that is your preference.
All pledges raised this year will go directly towards taking youth off the streets into a supportive housing environment where they can stabilize and learn critical life-skills in order to learn how to live independently. Safe Suites will be a bridge for youth out of homelessness and given them an opportunity to go back to school and follow their dreams. We have seen the difference housing and supports can make in the lives of kids and know that when we invest in these kids, they will give back to our communities.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I would be happy to help. Thank you for helping Kamloops kids to find a way home. Together we will end youth homelessness in our community.
