Tyler Robinson Foundation - Go The Distance for Families Fighting Cancer Event, 2022
On Saturday, April 23, 2022, our crew was at The Wilds at Cedar Valley Golf Course with local fundraisers for TRF. The event was "Go The Distance" through which about a hundred participants of all ages rode stationary bikes trying to ride further and faster than anybody else during ten-minute relays.
The TRF provides financial support for families when a child is stricken with cancer. When a child is diagnosed and admitted into a hospital for treatment, one parent has to become a full-time representative and care provider, meaning they usually have to give up their job. This of course puts strain on the family financially. The TRF helps with mortgage or rent payments, car loan payments, and other expenses in order to help ensure the family does not fall heavily into debt due to the diagnosis.
We would like to thank the following sponsors of the Ontario Community Awareness Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a not-for-profit truly local voice to you and your neighbours. They also enable our crew to be able to continue providing donated services to promote local benevolent community groups and charities based in The City of Barrie, the Town of Innisfil, and the Township of Oro-Medonte.
