A marathon bike ride that spanned nearly the whole length of Vancouver Island wrapped up this morning, and it was all done in an astonishingly short time, for a good cause.
Riders Ryley Carter and Anika Todd were accompanied by supporters as they arrived at Mile Zero this morning, after biking more than 500 kilometres
from Port Hardy in less than 24 hours, almost half of it in the rain.
And they did it to fight childhood obesity. The ride raised over 7-thousand dollars for two charities that help kids get active.
This will go a long way towards raising that score to an A+ in the near future.
The funds will go to support the 60 Minute Kids Club and the Sport for Life Society – a charity that works with schools and communities
to instill healthy habits into kids with free resources, training, and support
