Remember the first time you rode a Bicycle
- Remember the first time you rode your very own bike? The freedom, the wind in your hair, and the excitement of exploring? Many of the people we support have never experienced the thrill, exhilaration, and simple joy of riding a bike. Bicycles are excellent for mobility, therapy, recreation, fun, and freedom! Help us raise money towards the purchase of custom bicycles. Our hope is to provide at least one in Winnipeg and one in Portage this year with the proceeds earned from the MB Marathon Fundraiser.
