The Salvation Army’s Ride for Compassion goes tomorrow, starting here in Fort St. John.
Around 50 bikes are expected to take part in this year’s ride, which was moved to Saturday this year to allow for a longer route – this year’s course will be around 450 kilometres long.
Sunday’s events will begin with a 10:30 church service at the Salvation Army.
The festivities will then move to the totam mall, where there will be a show and shine at 12:30, and then a bike rodeo, which Captain Ben Lippers says will be entertaining for the whole family.
There is also a silent auction, at the cinema entrance to the Totem mall, running until 9 o’clock tonight.
Again, all proceeds from this year’s events will go towards the purchase of the Salvation Army’s Emergency Mobile Kitchen.
To register for the Compassion Ride, you can call Connie at 785-0500, or you can register in person at the Salvation Army in Fort St. John, at the Silent auction booth in the totem Mall, or at Mile 0 motor sports in Dawson Creek.
