Orchard Park Goes the Distance for Families Facing Cancer

Posted on Tuesday, May 02, 2017

OP 2017 Inside RideOn Friday April 21, Orchard Park secondary’s staff and students organized and participated in a two-hour cycling event to support families facing childhood cancer.

In its sixth year, OP raised about $9,000, which brings their total raised to about $69,000 over six years. All proceeds go to the families dealing with cancer through the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation.

Orchard Park dedicated this year’s Inside Ride to a Grade 10 student Sarah Stephens, who battled childhood cancer.

This year, 22 teams of six were encouraged to dress up; prizes are awarded for best team costume, top mileage, and top fundraisers. All prizes were donated by local businesses.

The Inside Ride is a great fundraising event that helps support families impacted by childhood cancer. Orchard Park looks forward to hosting this event for years to come.
