WHL - RIDE for the KIDS

Attention: Western Hockey League Alumni

Thanks to the leadership of three former Saskatchewan WHL players - Kelly Chase, Curtis Leschyshyn and Dave Chartier - a major fundraising initiative is being staged next month in support the Saskatchewan Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The WHL Ride for the Kids is the largest fundraising project ever conducted by WHL Alumni as former WHL and NHL players will bike over 650km from Prince Albert to Regina June 5 – 9, 2011. The province-wide bike relay will include stops in all five (5) WHL Centers – Prince Albert (June 5), Saskatoon (June 6), Swift Current (June 7), Moose Jaw (June 8) and Regina (June 9) – with special fundraising events to be held in each center. Partners involved in organizing the event include the WHL Alumni group who created the concept; the WHL Office and the five (5) WHL Saskatchewan based Clubs; the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan and the presenting sponsor, Scotiabank.

This is your opportunity to be involved in this exciting WHL Alumni fundraising event.

The WHL Ride for the Kids is looking WHL Alumni to participate in the event either by riding in the relay itself; volunteering in the staging of the bike relay or any of the 5 special events in each WHL center; or simply by making a donation to this great cause.

Many of you played in Saskatchewan, were raised in the province or may simply want to remain connected to the WHL by supporting this great cause.
