The annual Wish Trail Ride in Clearwater in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada will be held on Sunday, May 27.

The event will support Children’s Wish in their ongoing mission to grant the wishes of Canadian children aged three – 17 with life-threatening illnesses, while also providing a wonderful opportunity to partake in family-friendly horse riding activities.

Over the past years, Bill Dowds has organized this Wish Trail Ride to raise funds for these children and bring the Clearwater community together.

By making a donation, attending the post-ride BBQ, or joining the ride with your own four-legged friend, the Clearwater community can support Children’s Wish, Bill, and the dedicated group of riders who raise funds to grant wishes to sick kids like Kathleen year after year. Visit www.wishtrailride.ca/ride-locations/clearwater/ for more information or to donate.

What: Annual Wish Trail Ride in Clearwater (there is an easy ride and a difficult ride)

When: Sunday, May 27 – 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Where: Canyon Creek Ranch, Birch Island

Children’s Wish has been fulfilling wishes for sick kids in BC since 1987, and has proudly fulfilled over 100 wishes for children in B.C. last year.
