CAPPY 2015

What a wonderful day! Our 2015 CAPPY Ride drew 112 riders to the Ancaster Fairgrounds, each doing their part to help children thrive despite sexual abuse. We are so very grateful for their support! The weather was perfect, and all indications are that the route was a popular one with this year's participants. We once again had a tremendous escort from our partners from Hamilton Police Service, along with officers supporting us from the Brantford Police, for a scenic ride that moved smoothly and safely. We are so very grateful for another successful event for THRIVE Child and Youth Trauma Services (formerly the Community Child Abuse Council)!

Special thanks to riders who raised pledges in advance, and to all the sponsors, donors, and volunteers who made the day possible. Thanks also to Brad and Maureen Sanderson, our Honourary Ride Chairs this year, to the awesome musicians from Blue Funk Mojo, and to the members of several area riding clubs who came out for the day. Each and every person involved in the CAPPY Ride is making a positive difference in young lives, and for that you have our heartfelt thanks.

If you missed the CAPPY Ride this year and still want to support child abuse prevention, education, and treatment programs at THRIVE, please consider making a donation (www.thrivechildandyouth.ca) - your support will immediately help to change young lives.
