8 years, over $863,913.60 raised, over 3000 participants, and we still continue to “Ride for One, Ride for All”

December 11, 2018

Cancer continues to touch the lives of those we love too often and it is even more heartbreaking when that life is one of an innocent child. In 2011, a student within our school was diagnosed with cancer which sparked the inaugural Ride of the Mustang bike-a-thon: an event where teams work in shifts to ride stationary bikes for 48 consecutive hours. In its first year, this event saw 42 teams with 400 participants raise $51,000 for “Kids Helping Kids”, an initiative at the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. Since then, the ride has expanded to host 65 teams with over 700 participants, and cumulatively we have raised in excess of $863,913.60. Recently awarded “The Spirit of Generosity Award for Philanthropic Group” at the National Philanthropy Day Luncheon, we continue to be humbled and motivated by our overwhelming support and the drive to make a difference within our school and community.

To that end, students and staff are now busy organizing our 9th annual Ride of the Mustang event to be held April 16 to April 18, 2019. In celebration of our anniversary year, we have proudly branded this year’s Ride of the Mustang. Not only are we celebrating nine years of making a difference but we hope, with this year’s donations, to surpass the $1,000,000 mark of total funds raised through this student led initiative for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation.

We know we can not do this alone and in order to reach this milestone, we need your help!

We are currently seeking community partners to join our cause and help us help children and their families dealing with cancer. A partnership summary has been attached to this letter outlining this year’s sponsorship levels and subsequent benefits for your review. Sponsorship dollars and gifts in kind are an integral part in offsetting operational costs and augmenting funds generated via the participants in the ride. As a partner, you are not only supporting “Kids Helping Kids” but also acting as role models demonstrating the importance of giving back to our community and building community spirit.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. A student committee member will be following up to discuss this partnership opportunity with you shortly. We look forward to this meeting to further discuss this opportunity and hope to partner with you in the future. If you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Cailey Church by email caileybchurch@rvschools.ab.ca, Ms. Alexis Jones by email at alexismjones@rvschools.ab.ca or Ms. Kelsey Payne at 403-948-5935 ext. 5192 or kepayne@rockyview.ab.ca.
