Stettler mom plans bike ride to support women’s shelter

A Stettler mother has organized a 60-kilometre bike ride from Clive to her hometown on Sept. 15

A Stettler mother has organized a 60-kilometre bike ride from Clive to her hometown on Sept. 15 to support the Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter.

“It will be a challenging and enjoyable ride,” Kim Breker said.

“I just started challenging myself to see if I could see if I could bike that far, and then I decided to support a project and I thought of the women’s shelter.”

Already, 10 other people have joined her project to pedal.

“We don’t really have a goal set for the number of riders or funds raised, but we’ll be happy to raise whatever we can to help the women’s shelter and that will be great,” Breker said.

From her parents’ hometown of Clive, Breker plans to begin the ride at 8 a.m. and expects to arrive at the Stettler Alliance Church four to six hours later.

“We look forward to bringing the Red Deer and Stettler communities together to ride in support of the event and its mission to promote healthy, happy families, body, mind and spirit,” said Tina Trowsse, the marketing and development co-ordinator for CAWES.

“We invite everyone to support us as sponsors, to help us raise awareness about this important issue and its effects on families in our communities.”

Funds raised are pegged to support CAWES programs to help women and their children take refuge from family violence.

“We aim to provide compassionate counselling and safe shelter to victims of violence and provide valuable tools to them to begin a new life free from abuse,” Trowsse said.

For more information, to register, donate or volunteer, phone Breker at 403-742-8281 or email jkbreker@yahoo.ca to or Trowsse by phone at 403-318-2321 or email tina.trowsse@cawes.com.
