Anonymous donor to match all pledges made to YANA Ride participants for next two weeks

The Comox Bike Co. YANA Ride is one of the biggest fundraising events of the year for YANA. The need for YANA travel and accommodation funding continues to increase, with YANA providing support for more than 500 medical trips for Comox Valley families each year.

Thanks to an anonymous donor who has stepped up to support this fundraiser in a big way, for the first time ever, your donations to riders participating in the event will go twice as far.

Between 9 a.m. Aug. 1 and 11:59 p.m. Aug. 15, make a pledge to a rider and tag them on YANA’s Facebook page, @YANAComoxValley, and your donation will be matched by an incredibly generous YANA champion, up to $5,000!

The Comox Bike Company YANA Ride, taking place Aug. 18, is a fun and challenging ride through the beautiful Comox Valley. There is a 25-km, 50-km and a 100-km loop as well as a 6-km family route that allows riders of all ages to cycle together.

For more information, to register, or to donate to a rider, visit www.yanacomoxvalley.com

YANA (You Are Not Alone) is a community organization offering help to Comox Valley families who need to travel for medical services for their children.
