This summer will mark the 19th anniversary of the provincial Wish Trail Ride in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada – BC and Yukon Chapter.
The provincial Wish Trail Ride has raised more than $1 million since it began.
“This ride is a unique opportunity to connect two groups – the equestrian community and families with children facing difficult medical challenges. Simply by enjoying time with your four-legged friend and asking for donations, you can help us provide a heartfelt wish to children in need of renewed hope,” says Jennifer Petersen, chapter director.
The second annual local ride will take place on Saturday, May 30. Registration will start at 10 a.m., with the ride to begin at 11 a.m. Barbeque to follow. The ride begins from Star Lake Farm on Old North Thompson Highway in Blackpool.
Children’s Wish is seeking volunteers, participants, donors and sponsors. Those interested are asked to contact Bill Dowds at 250-674-4083, email Hazeldowds@hotmail.com, or visit www.wishtrailride.ca.
