East-side Road Ride 2016

La Broquerie, MB

Eden’s East-side Road Ride, Saturday 27 August 2016. This is the second annual 80 km ride for Mental Health that starts and ends in La Broquerie, about 11 km east of Steinbach. We’re all set to go with the second East-side Road Ride. Last year being our first ride, we listened and we learned a few things and we’re looking forward to beautiful weather and riding on a beautiful section of road. This road ride is a fund-raiser to support mental health recovery programs for individuals living in our Southern Health region.

We have a brand new Cyclist’s Manual ready for you to download here. It has a whole lot of detail in it about what we’re doing this for, where we’re going and how you can become involved as a cyclist or as a volunteer. We also welcome your phone calls or e-mails. Connect with us at 204-325-5355 or by e-mail at agatha@edenhealthcare.ca.

If you’re ready to register, please click HERE. You’ll be directed to our secure on-line registration vehicle and it will also give you some really useful tools for your fund-raising efforts.

Eden Foundation recently committed itself to being supportive to a number of programs in the Eden Health Care Services family. These initiatives are outside the scope of what our service purchase agreement with the government is in a position to support.

  • An Aqua-cise program run out of Community Choices in Winkler
  • Buying books and other resources for The Wellness Library in Steinbach’s Eden office
  • Provide resources for much-needed renovations and supplies at Pathway Community Mental Health office in Winkler
  • Re-shingling Wilson Courts apartment complex in Steinbach
  • Artwork at a number of locations including Eden Mental Health Centre.
  • Provide resources for renovations in Enns Courts apartments in Winkler

In addition, we continue to prepare ourselves for the development of another housing project in the region. This will be a major project that will be in partnership with our provincial government. Due to the fact that we’ve recently been through an election in Manitoba, there will be the period of adjustment again before everyone is back in “road gear”. We look forward to being able to share more information with you as things progress.

While you’re on the ride with us, we’ll feed and water you along the way and if you’ve been with us in last year, you know we have a wind-up at the end of the ride and we get fed and watered again. Come join us! The ride accommodates a wide variety of skill levels without any encouragement of competition but rather of collaboration. Gather some friends together from work, your social group or church and register as a team.

About bigjac

Just a middle-aged man whose blood pressure and cholesterol were out of wack and needed a tuneup, bad. Then I rekindled my love for riding a bike -- just the simple act of turning the cranks. What happened next is I met a lot of neat people who are as nuts as I am. Ride on.
