Cancer Fundraiser Party for Ryder Evans-Brockett this Saturday
Many of you will recall that the crowd prime at the Giro di Burnaby was a fundraiser to support Ryder Evans-Brockett, a 4 1/2 year old boy fighting inoperable brain cancer. Ryder's family are deeply entrenched in the cycling community, and the bike shop they own-- Sharpey's Cycles in Burnaby--is a sponsor of the Burnaby Velodrome.
This Saturday there's a community event to support this amazing family. Let's show them our support. Information below. I hope to see you there!
Event: Ryder's Road to Recovery "family fun day"
Host: Ryder's recovery team
When: Saturday, July 26 at 10:00 PM - 3:00 PM
(Escape Velocity folks can swing by after the club ride!)
Where: Corner of Hastings and Inlet Drive - Westridge Park
