The Dalhousie Commerce Society (DCS) is proud to host the annual Halifax event for the National Inside Ride Tour. It is a fantastic initiative and it is our pleasure to do all that we can to give back to the community.
The Inside Ride is a unique initiative not only because the funds raised go specifically to children who are bravely fighting cancer, but it’s a cross-Canada tour as well. Beginning in Newfoundland on a bus that holds over 40 stationary bikes, it travels across the country to Vancouver, stopping at multiple Inside Ride fundraising events in cities and towns along the way.
The DCS supports the IWK Health Centre because we believe all children have a right to live their lives free of sickness and strife. The services provided by the IWK give children the opportunity to receive care as close to home as possible. The Inside Ride raises funds for children who are living with cancer and particular to the Halifax initiative, half the funds raised are donated to the IWK oncology unit and the other to Camp Goodtime – a one-week camp for children fighting cancer where kids experience awesome camp activities canoeing, swimming, arts and crafts and outdoor education!
The Halifax event on October 3rd is the second stop after St. John’s (yes, the bus hops on the Newfoundland ferry!). After two months of fundraising, participants come together and celebrate by taking turns riding the stationary bikes. It is an amazing event filled with contagious enthusiasm and the DCS is happy to host it year after year!
The DCS has raised over $20,000 from the Inside Ride over the past two years and we are excited to add to it this year! We hope to see you there!
