On Oct 3rd, Jim Richards, a super supporter of Canada SCORES, spent a day raising awareness and funds (close to $6,000!!!) for our organization by pushing his own personal limits by riding Mt. Seymour 7 times (6,291 meters) to exceed the elevation of Canada's tallest mountain, Mt. Logan – 5,959 meters. As a weekend rider, this was way beyond anything he had ever done in the past and tested his capacity, but it also put him in a position to ask his close friends, fellow riders and family to pledge him per meter so that a few more kids could enter the program and surpass whatever limits were put on them through circumstances beyond their control. It was a very long, very repetitive, grueling day, but he believed that the determination and resiliency shown are positive examples for the benefiting youths.
Thank you Mr. Laurie Ricou, the author of "Foot Notes: Telling Stories of Girls' Soccer" for inviting us to your book launch and donating your book's royalties to Canada SCORES Vancouver.
