SUMMERSIDE - It's a chance to hop on your bicycle and help raise funds for breakfast programs across P.E.I.
The fifth edition of the Biking for Breakfast Challenge takes place Saturday, Aug. 1.
"You can help children experience more health and more success in life by supporting school breakfast programs," says event founder Ken Trenholm. "Children deserve the best start in life and our goal is to have a breakfast program in every Island school by 2020 so no child is left behind."
Trenholm says 1,507 more children are eating breakfast daily throughout the year and 14 new programs have started since inception of the challenge.
Participants can choose any number of options: from 10 to 50 km to the full tip-to-tip ride (284 km) across P.E.I. Some cyclists ride a custom course and others organize their teams to bicycle 50 km each and meet at the refueling stations.
Registration is open up to the day of the event but participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible. "Your ride options are flexible and are based on your goals and the goals of your team," Trenholm explained.
