And they’re off – last Thursday morning was the official launch of the 2018 Nokia Powering the Inside Ride campaign at 600 March road. Toonies and Timbits were the order of the day – the Toonie challenge was another great success with our thanks to Nate, who was on hand sticking all the donations on to the two bikes. Tom and Nate did a terrific job of sharing Timbits with everyone arriving at work that morning, and of course all the information about the Inside Ride event coming up on May 10 this year. Exciting times for sure. A big thank you to Nate, Tom, Jacquelyn and Adam who made for a successful launch! Looking forward to the coming weeks!

Nokia is launching this year’s Inside Ride campaign this week! Official launch is on Thursday April 5th from 0730 – 0930 and we’re looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces and meeting some new people too. Remember they will be having their loonie/tooney bike set up for donations with a chance to win a Bobby Ryan signed jersey.

Where does the time go? This was a pretty terrific week, I must say, the highlight of course was the Wine & Cheese event at Nokia.

I am honoured and humbled when a Candlelighters Ambassador Family speaks
and feel privileged to be part of such a wonderful organization and to work with such amazing partners – Nokia and CTCACF.

Pictured here is Katie, a childhood cancer survivor, with parents Scott and Susan in the background. This lovely family shared their story of how Candlelighters impacted their journey, touching all in attendance. Soon, the Nokia campaign kick-off launch will be upon us but for now, I will savour the feeling of making a difference and be grateful for the wonderful people in my world.
