B.C. Island District – Dave Mackenzie, a retired member of the RCMP, has committed himself to raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society by riding a bicycle across Canada.
After completing a 35 year career with the RCMP, he now has the time to do something he has been passionate about. He will be departing Vancouver Island from Cowichan Bay, north of Victoria, on May 18, 2017.
His route will take him across all the western and Prairie Provinces and then on to Ontario and Quebec before entering New Brunswick. He will travel to Prince Edward Island via the Confederation Bridge then back off the island to Nova Scotia via the Woods Island Ferry. From Nova Scotia he will travel via ferry to Newfoundland, circle the province and ferry back to Nova Scotia. Dave is then going to pedal to Saint John New Brunswick where he will end his fund raising journey in his home town on the Bay of Fundy.
Dave is passionate about this cause as he has lost family members and friends to cancer over the years. It is my hope to do something to help. I want more survivors and less cancer.
He is encouraging everyone to do their part by donating to the Canadian Cancer Society and visit his website to do so. It is: DavePedalsForHope.com.
