Support from Langley was appreciated

I want to thank The Times and reporter Natasha Jones for the story about our recent Wellspring Ride for Rwanda.

Editor: I want to thank The Times and reporter Natasha Jones for the story about our recent Wellspring Ride for Rwanda.

My husband Peter and I had great support from the community, including from Heath and Dan at Cranky’s Bike Shop in Aldergrove. I want to publicly thank Cranky’s for partnering with Peter and me for our ride — fixing our bikes, changing tires, and making sure we had all the right equipment to make the 220 km trek.

I also want to thank Bill Ede from Aldergrove Soccer, who lent us a canopy tent and rain gear. The 60 riders were grateful for a dry place to stop on our first day when it poured rain all day. Peter and I kept drier than we may have been otherwise.

Thank you also to those who gave financially to our ride. Readers responded and Peter and I reached our goal of raising $5,000. In total, the ride brought in nearly $60,000. One hundred per cent of funds raised are going straight to Wellspring’s projects in schools in Rwanda. It’s great to see a community come together to support great causes. Thank you Langley.

We had a team of riders and support crew who came from Langley, and other r iders came from all across Canada. For more information on next year’s ride, see www.lake2lake.org.

Janice Nikkel,
