The Clara Hughes cycling marathon, a 12,000 kilometer odyssey, through over 100 communities across Canada for the Mental Health Association, was an astonishing accomplishment that inspired me to cycle for a cause myself, it was to be for JETS Baseball. The plan is to cycle 100,000 kilometers, likely taking ten years to complete. We will conduct a fund-raiser each year to coincide with the Baseball Academy Season beginning September 1st and concluding March 31st. In that 7 month period the projected distance I plan to cycle approximately 8,000 kilometers. The goal $20,000.00 – made up of a minimum of 200 pledges.
The logistics are: complete the pledge form for “Pennies for K’s” (kilometers cycled), noting your pledge per kilometer, or your choice as per form and e-mail address. Monthly updates will be forwarded to you by e-mail to all who signed up. On March 31st, 2016 Barbara will e-mail you on the total kilometers cycled and you simply remit your donation to the Academy.
Please make your cheque payable to Horizon School Division No. 67 and on the Memo line note “Pennies for K’s” to get a tax receipt for your donation.
