Link makes final ride to Children’s

Agassiz teen makes annual trek by bicycle to Children's Hospital

 

EJ Link is preparing for his final big trek. The Agassiz teen has been pedaling from Agassiz to B.C. Children’s Hospital to celebrate his birthday for the past three years.

And on April 29, he’ll do it one last time.

“Next year is grad year and I’ve got to buckle down,” he said. He is canvassing the area for donations, which over the years has added up to $7,000. This year, he’s raised about $500 and is hoping for more before Sunday’s ride.

He’ll be doing this ride alone, as the friends that came along in the past have now gone onto university.

Link and his friends are also planning benefit concert at Harrison Memorial Hall on May 15, again with proceeds going to Children’s.

Donations can be made by calling 604-796-2523 or by to email ej.link@hotmail.com. Find EJ on Facebook at ‘EJ link’s bikeride for BC Children’s Hospital.’
