Congratulations! $26,000.00 raised at the 2nd Annual London Ride to Cure FOP
Saturday, July 20, 2013
Thank you so much to everyone who supported our event this year making it bigger and even better than last year! We had amazing volunteers, sponsors and participants. Friends, family and our community really got behind this grass-roots event and helped us raise $25,500 (and money is still trickling in!) As one participant put it "There was such a sense of community at this event". Funds go to cfopn in honour of Brooke Connell and others afflicted with FOP to further new directions of research. Our site at www.londonridetocurefop.com is currently asleep and we will wake it up next April. Pictures of our event will be posted soon. If you would like to contact someone about this event in the meantime, please contact Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Congratulations! $6,000.00 raised at the Calgary Ride to Cure FOP
Sunday, July 28, 2013
Pete and Karen hosted a “Ride and Walk to Cure FOP” on Sunday, July 28, 2013 at Calgary’s Baker Park! In an effort to do something a little different this year they did a parents vs. kids fundraiser. Pete and Karen had their own Giving Page and Owen and Miranda had theirs. I think that it was apparent pretty quickly that Owen and Miranda would win the fundraising challenge. Big thanks to everyone who donated and participated and helped us raise an amazing 6,000.00!
