RBC Dominion Securities doubling YANA Ride dollars

RBC Dominion Securities and their investment advisors Brendan Somers, Lara Austin, Don Somers, Brian Balfe, Sean Martin, and Blake Simpson have stepped up in a huge way in support of the 2020 Comox Bike Co. YANA Ride, and they’re hoping the community will too.

Their goal is to help raise $10,000 in 10 days by matching donations to YANA Ride participants dollar for dollar, up to $5,000.

Don Somers explains that they like to make sure the community is looked after.

“Especially this year, with COVID-19, there’s a lot of people who are struggling. We’re seeing a lot of incidents where people do need help, and an organization like YANA is just really rising up to the moment here.”

“We’re hoping people will pull out those wallets, and start making some of those donations,” added Brendan.

From July 15-25, every dollar donated to the YANA Ride will be doubled. There’s never been a better time to show your support for YANA!

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.

To register to ride, or to make a donation that will be matched by RBC Dominion Securities, go to www.yanacomoxvalley.com.
