Friends of Refugees Trail held its first and very successful bike-a-thon fundraiser at the end of May. Lloyd Joyce says the support and commitment from the riders was over the top, they raised approximately $4700. “We reach our goals and then some,” said Joyce. “We had ten riders doing two different courses and they all accomplished their pledges. I myself was so surprised and overwhelmed by the response from the community,” Joyce said. “The Trail community has a kind heart … each and every pledge will help to provide and new life and future for a refugee family.” For more information, visit the group’s website, friendsofrefugeestrail.com.
