The Comox Bike Company YANA Ride only a month away

YANA’s Comox Bike Co. Annual Ride is one of their biggest fundraising events of the year, with proceeds directed toward the accommodation and travel funding programs YANA provides for Comox Valley families.

With an ever-growing need for support comes their biggest fundraising goal yet.

With the amazing help of the community, YANA hopes to raise at least $80,000 at this year’s Ride event. If that goal is reached, about half of the travel funding required for families would be covered in the year ahead.

Anyone who raises at least $50 will earn an exclusive YANA Ride hat.

YANA is offering some great prizes and a brand new incentive for riders to gather pledges and donations to help reach this goal: Every registered rider has a chance to win a draw prize and all riders who raise at least $50 will earn an exclusive YANA Ride hat compliments of event sponsor Ivan Lee of TD Wealth.

The Comox Bike Company YANA Ride is a fun and challenging ride through the beautiful Comox Valley on Sunday, Aug. 18.

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.
