Happy to announce we already have a handful of families committed to hosting international students! In addition to seeking further host families for Grade 5-7 Korean students in January and February, 2017, we are also in need of a family to care for a 16-year-old Japanese-Vietnamese student. She is intelligent, considerate, responsible, and eager to study in Gold River. Please read the attached file to see an overview of the student, and read a letter from her, her mother, and her teacher.

On Sept 21, 2016 we began a 9 day tour continuing our fund raising efforts for pediatric cancer research and for Camp Good Times in the Cops for Cancer Tour De Coast.
I am proud to say that our team of 32 riders and all of the hard working volunteers were successful raising over $501,696.00 (still growing).
We rode our bikes 806 Km along the Coast. We visited hundreds of students in both elementary and high schools, multiple Coast Capital Savings and several other participating businesses. At each visit we presented a plaque as a token of our appreciation for their fundraising.
We had the pleasure of meeting junior riders who could come with us on parts of the ride (they got to ride in a police car). These kids shared their cancer journey with students at schools. We met Taylor who has had 4 rounds of chemotherapy. Taylor has two beautiful sisters – twins. You can imagine how difficult each day is for this family. On our last day we added a stop at Children’s Hospital. There we visited a Vancouver Police member, his wife and their 2 year old son JJ who is battling Leukemia.
I can’t say enough about Camp Goodtimes. You should see the children’s eyes light up at the mere mention of the camp. The camp is staffed with volunteers some of who were cancer patients themselves and a full Oncology team.
We will continue to make a difference in the treatment and prevention of cancer. My website will remain open anyone who chooses to donate. Thank you for all of your support with my personal ride and thank you for being a part of the cure!
