Third year for Link’s ride

EJ Link will ride again. For the third year in a row, the Agassiz teenager will hop on his bike and pedal to B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.

And he’ll be taking donations from the community with him.

Link stopped by The Observer to announce he is ready to take on the trek once again.

Last year, it took him and his two friends, Parabhjot Singh and Nikica Nikolic, seven hours and 45 minutes to complete the trip. When they arrived, they handed over a cheque for $3,400. The year before, he managed to raise $2,167. That first year, Link completed the ride as part of his leadership course at AESS. But last year, he decided to continue to do the trip on his own.

This year, he has a business sponsor helping him along. Domino’s in Agassiz gives Link pizzas to sell at lunch hour, and he takes them to school.

Students and staff can then buy individual pieces from Link, with the money going directly toward the hospital.

The last two years, Link planned the trip for his birthday, April 11. This year, the ride will be on April 10.

To donate to his cause, contact him by phoning 604-796-2523 or 604-367-5621.
