The inside ride

We just realized that we haven't written yet about The Inside Ride. It is a national fundraiser, with events held across the country, benefiting a different cancer charity in each city. The link probably explains it better than I can. It takes place tomorrow - Friday September 23, at Evan Hardy Collegiate in Saskatoon.

Proceeds from the Saskatoon Inside Ride will go to support Camp Circle of Friends - the camp our kids attended in June. It was a good experience for them. They all got to meet other kids who either have or had cancer themselves, or whose immediate family members (parents or siblings) have cancer. The kids all talked about camp for weeks afterwards, and they still are telling us stories. It was cool that there were other kids who were part of the world of sick children - the world that we didn't even know existed before Kol's surgery.

We are honoured to have been asked to be the Tribute Family for this year's ride. We will be the representatives of the camp, and will have an opportunity to speak about how camp has affected us. Kol is thrilled to be giving another speech. Birgitte had originally said she'd also like to talk, but now she is getting nervous.
