Lake2Lake Ride, Walk or Run for Rwanda 2020

Team Russouw

On the weekend of September 12 and 13 I have committed to riding around the entire Okanagan Lake in support of the work of the Wellspring Foundation for Education. (The route I have chosen is around 300km!)

In these uncertain times we find ourselves in I believe it is important to support Wellspring and their ongoing support to vulnerable communities in Rwanda—both at the school level (as schools are often a focal point for community care, food programs, and overall social cohesion), and by playing a part in Rwanda’s wider response to the current COVID-19 crisis.

My annual Lake to Lake Ride for Rwanda usually takes place around this time but since it cannot be held this year due to COVID restrictions, many of the usual participants have chosen to ride, run, walk or even skateboard to continue to raise money for this great cause. Please help support me in this important work by contributing generously.

Dor’Ann will also be joining me for a portion of the ride and this year. I am also excited to have my brother along for support on the ride. (he says he may even ride a portion with me).

Please cheer me on from home next weekend as I push to ride around beautiful Okanagan Lake. If you want to join me for part of it, drop me a line. I would love the company.
