Big brothers, big sisters gain from bike ride

Last weekend the Williams Lake Big Brothers, Big Sisters hosted their annual Tour De Cariboo bike ride to raise funds for the ongoing programs the organization offers.

Melissa Newberry, Executive Director of the organization in Williams Lake says despite the lower than normal turn out, they were pleased, ” we raised about 24-thousand dollars and we had 45 riders, you know with the amount of riders, we had lower ridership and with the amount of riders we were very pleased with the outcome.”

Newberry does say they believe the weather was a bit of a deterrent because a lot of riders train in the early summer and this years weather through that time period was not conducive to riding and training.

Next up, the night out event for adults around the Valentines weekend.
