Healing Wheels Ride arrives in Harrison

Bikers riding from Langley to Harrison to support Michael Cuccione Foundation

The Healing Wheels Ride comes to Harrison this weekend.

Healing Wheels is a Border Services ride for childhood cancers, and travels from Langley to Harrison Hot Springs Sunday, Aug. 11.

The hope is to raise both awareness and funding to support and steer families through their cancer experience.

The ride wraps up by the lake, with live music and a barbecue at 1 p.m.

There will be raffle prizes and all proceeds raised go to the support of the Michael Cuccione Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research.

The ride is open to any licensed rider, and will include participation from other law-enforcement communities, emergency services communities and the communities at large.

Border Services Officers were inspired by a three year old boy named Dominic and his fight against leukemia, so they rallied together to embark on a journey to bring awareness to the plight of young children battling against childhood cancer. Thus was born the Border Services Kick for a Cure Initiative, a quest to kicking childhood cancer where it hurts, to lift spirits and help make it easier for families to say lets keep on fighting.

For five years now, the Kick for a cure Initiative has joined forces with the Michael Cuccione Foundation.
