Greetings to everyone post-Cruise for Your Cause 2017!!
Another successful Cruise has come and gone. The rains stayed away at least for our outdoor PitStops and then the heavens opened up for our last leg…through a bit of “smelly business” but I’m sure most were thankful, like I was, to have most of it washed away before our final stop. Thank you to everyone who participated in the 6th annual Cruise for Your Cause! Your donations and contributions have helped out your unique charities in ways that you may not even be aware of.
On to some numbers:
REGSITRATION CHARITY TOTAL $5,910
GoFundMe Campaign – $775 ($711.98 after fees)
Cash donations (includes shirts, lunch, 50/50) - $1,848 (+$220 to 50/50 winner)
After all expenses for the event were taken into account, there is a grand total of $300 (rounded up) being donated to The Kidney Foundation of Canada, BC Branch in addition to donations listed above from registrations!
Other numbers of note:
23 Charities supported
159 km route

Thanks to everyone who supported and sponsored the Cruise by all means possible. There were so many key people involved and volunteering time and efforts in helping me organize this event, I thank you all.
And saying all that, I urge you all to remain safe on the roads this year. Spend time with family and friends and keep supporting those special people around you…you never know when you might be the one who needs the support.
On behalf of my family and everyone supported by the Cruise this year, thanks for another successful year and I’ll see you all next year on April 28, 2018!!
