First ever Ride to Provide
On September 13, 2015, H2H hosted a short (5 or 10km) and long (30km) family bike ride to help raise funds for Oliver’s families in need.
This event was a great chance for individuals and families to come out and support the community, while also getting some fun exercise. After finishing the ride, participants stayed around the park for some entertainment, food, and drink. Participants of all ages attended – this was not meant to be a race. The event started and finished at Lions Park in Oliver, starting at 9am. The long distance riders left an hour earlier than the short distance riders. Included in Registration Fees were: pledge form, BBQ lunch and drink, Ride to Provide branded T-shirt, a chance to win prizes, and hydration and energy throughout the ride.
