Peterborough's 2015 Big Bike Event Fast Approaching, Looking For Teams

The Heart and Stroke Foundation's local chapter is looking for teams for this year's Big Bike Event in Peterborough.

The big bike not only promotes a great cause, it is also a billboard that moves around downtown Peterborough and promotes the businesses and organizations that take part.

Teams can be staff, friends, family, survivors or a memorial team riding in memory of a loved one. The Peterborough ride takes place on May 11, 12, 13 and 14th (Monday to Thursday), and starts and ends across from Peterborough Square in the downtown.
 
There is space for full (29 riders) or half (15 riders) teams.

GoFundMe Page Set Up For Young Boy Fighting For His Life #PrayForParker

Parker Fulford is a very young boy from Peterborough who has overcome many struggles since being born premature, at only 23 weeks, in February 2012. The latest is very severe, as he has been airlifted from PRHC to Toronto Sick Kids with an extreme case of pneumonia. Parker, who has cerebral palsy, is in critical condition in hospital.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by James Todd to help the parents Jennifer and Mike Fulford with the costs they will incur due to travel to Toronto, losing income, food costs, etc., that add to an already stressful situation.

"I set up the GoFundMe page to do my part in helping them relieve some stress, because I know I'd hope for someone to do the same," James Todd, a father himself, tells us.

All funds collected will go to help the family cover costs. Click here to give, and use the hashtag #PrayForParker on Twitter and Facebook.
