A charity bike ride begins Sunday.

Biking for worthy cause

Kelowna riders cycling over 800 km across the province in just eight days

This Sunday a team of cyclists from Raymond James offices including Kelowna’s will begin an epic personal journey, cycling over 800 km across the province in just eight days.

Several riders from the Kelowna Corporate Branch will be amongst the team focused on completing this journey while raising funds and awareness for cancer treatment and research in our own province.

When Raymond James’ corporate office put out a Cross-Canada Charity Challenge in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday it didn’t take long before the ideas began to fly and the B.C. Big Ride concept was born. A few calls later and there were others ready to join the challenge. Once the charities were chosen it was a no brainer to place the finish line at the Raymond James Fathers’ Day Walk/Run on Sunday June 18th in Victoria BC.

The BC Big Ride Team consists of seasoned and non-seasoned riders and begins in Field B.C. on Sunday and arrives in Victoria on June 18.
