Event Description

Please Join us for Spin For Limbs 4th Annual Ride and BBQ!!

25km, 50km and 100km supported rides

Only $30 to register! at www.spinforlimbs.com

As many of you know I, and my orthopaedic colleagues at SickKids, treat children with complex limb deformities. These arise from developmental and growth problems, rare genetic diseases or severe trauma. In 2012 I developed this initiative with a grateful family who have been treated by us at SickKids who really wanted to raise awareness and funds for other families in their situation. We have now successfully raised over $120,000 in the last 3 years! 

Treatments are invariably long and complex often requiring multiple surgeries throughout childhood. Awareness for limb reconstruction is very important as many of these families have never met others in the same situation, and this annual event will give them an opportunity to do just that. Fundraising is also equally important for a number of areas such as supporting families undergoing treatments, extensive physiotherapy and other rehabilitation needs, which are rarely covered by OHIP or insurance, to provide expensive surgical equipment, provide training for future surgeons from around the world and to support vital research which will one day make a significant impact in preventing or treating complex limb deficiencies and deformities. All funds are channelled through SickKids Foundation specifically to the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery. 

BCC have a huge history of supporting great causes and I would be thrilled if you would consider coming out to ride this one with us. The ride is supported with a a beautiful route through the Halton Hills with pace groups to suit all riders. If you would also consider fund-raising with us, and securing sponsorship we would be incredibly grateful.
