In the 6 minute interview you can find out a little bit more about two people who are supporting two great causes. Julia Feltham is putting together a great website that will give a much needed vioce to the youth of the HRM. Julia is also invloved with Luke Murphy, a young man on a mission. Luke will be taking part in an 300km bikathon to raise money for the IWK.
Do you know youth who live healthy lifestyles and need to be celebrated? Do you know any people, businesses or politicians who might want to support active transportation? Healthy living? Youth? Recreation & Health Promotion? Rural revitalization? The IWK? Please help us generate support!
Luke Murphy, a grade 12 student at Ecolle Carrefour, and Mavericks are organizing a 300km bikeathon from YARMOUTH-LIVERPOOL-CHESTER-IWK Halifax to get rural youth excited and involved in the IWK telethon! We are raising $10 000 for the IWK, and planning to host events in all the towns to reward and recognize youth for active living. It shall take place May 27th-30th and youth organizers will be official big-cheque presenters on the Telethon program.
Anyone is welcome to join to bike or jog with us for a length of the journey, but we are also looking for assistance in these lovely towns to help us run send-off events, find donations, accommodations and reaching youth in all the rural places we shall be passing through.
