We are holding a free, public event at CENTENNIAL SQUARE on MAY 10th from 2-4 pm to support the efforts of RIDE FOR LYME.Avid cyclists are welcome to join Daniel and Tanner on the first leg of their trip from Mile '0' to Swartz Bay. Meet up before 5:30 a.m. at Mile '0' on May 11th and wear something lime green, if you can. Rules of the road apply and we ask all riders to be considerate of sleeping residents.
Two amazing young men, Daniel Corso and Tanner Cookson, will embark on an 8000 km bicycle trip across Canada on May 11th to raise awareness about Lyme disease and funds for the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation's (CanLyme) research and awareness projects.
Speakers to include: Daniel Corso, Tanner Cookson, David Cubberley (a Director of CanLyme), Gwen Barlee (Lyme disease advocate), Carole James (MLA for Victoria-Beacon Hill), and Lana Popham (MLA for South Saanich).
There will be lots of FREE information from CanLyme. RIDE FOR LYME t-shirts and wristbands, as well as CanLyme's Tick Kits, will be available for purchase (very handy to keep in your car or backpack).
Come out and show your support for this very worthwhile endeavor! Our event falls on Mother's Day, so bring your mothers or children along to hear and meet these inspirational speakers!
