Summer Updates 


Outdoor Weekend


We traveled to Rampart Creek Wilderness Hostel in July to experience the mountains and outdoor activities! We rock climbed an outdoor rock face, cycled and hiked Parker's Ridge! We enjoyed roasting marshmallows over the fire and had a good time with good company. Thank you very much to all our amazing volunteers and participants who made the weekend possible!



The cycling program grew a lot this year! We had many new cyclists, multiple ride groups, skills sessions and the addition of other adapted bikes to make it a true paracycling program! Everyone improved immensely this year so great job cyclists!


Many thanks to our volunteers who came out each week to lead groups, provide a helping hand and help keep the bikes in tip top shape!  



The KwadSquad had an amazing first season of racing, completing the Great White North 1/2 Ironman Triathlon, Edmonton Marathon and The Rotary Run for life. Congratulations KwadSquad! 


The push chair and adapted bike (pictured above) are available to others for use, so if you or someone you know are interested in participating in an event, please contact our office to find out more.
