"Bicycle Bob" Rides Again!
Here in Killarney, we're calling it "Ride2Believe".
Manitobans who live in rural areas also rely on St. Boniface Hospital for life-saving care every day – because of accidents, heart disease, cardiac surgery, premature and sick babies, and more.
I plan to bicycle about 85 km in one ride this September, in support of patient care and medical research at the Hospital.
My father was the owner and operator of Moore Bus Lines, a small passenger bus service. He died more than 40 years ago; to honour his memory, I’ll be riding the bus route he started in 1922 – from Headingley, I’ll ride west along Highway 26 to Portage la Prairie. Then I’ll return east to Oakville, where my dad grew up and started his business.
My Run2Believe ride is also in celebration of my two adult children, both of whom were born at the Hospital. Their mother received excellent care in the prenatal unit for months, for medical reasons, before each of them was born. My son was placed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Intermediate Nursery in 1977.
