Pedaling for hope

Cyclists to participate in 200-km Ride4Hope on Wednesday

A team of more than 50 cyclists – including Canucks Alumni – will rest their legs at Morgan Crossing Wednesday during the 200-km Ride4Hope.

Benefiting Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, the annual event begins at Memorial Park in Hope at 8:30 a.m. with riders making stops at three London Drug’s locations along the way in an effort to raise funds for the hospice.

The ride will conclude at 5:30 with a barbecue at the Morgan Crossing location, 130-15850 26 Ave., where visitors have the opportunity to meet Canuck’s alumni Dave Babych, Jeff Bandura, Ken Berry, Terry Bingley, Garrett Burnett, Sean Crowther, Dean Malkoc, Gary Nylund and Philip Von Stefanelli, along with Vaughan Karpan and Canucks mascot Fin.

In addition to the ride, London Drugs will be selling Truffini’s 106-gram chocolate bars ($2.99 for one, $5 for two) with proceeds going to the hospice.
