Bike to Work Week 2017 (BTWW) is taking place May 29 – June 4, 2017. This initiative encourages people to sign up and commit to commuting to work by bicycle for a week. Active transportation to work promotes healthy lifestyles, increased physical activity and prevention of chronic disease as well as provides positive economic and environmental impacts including saving money on gas, reducing vehicle emissions and reducing our collective carbon footprint.
Bike to Work Week Kootenays is proud to be the only “community” to fundraise for a local not-for-profit society in conjunction with BTWW. In 2016, we have partnered with the West & East Kootenay Brain Injury Association (KBIA).
West & East Kootenay Brain Injury Association is a community organization and the only brain injury association serving the entire Columbia Basin/Boundary region. The organization depends on community grants, donations, and fundraising to continue to provide services. We are asking for your help in continuing to provide much needed supports and services to the individuals and families in our communities who are living with an acquired brain injury. Watch the video above to hear the stories of two of their members.
Donations of $25 or more are eligible for a charitible tax receipt.
Thank you to our Bike to Work Kootenays 2017 partners!
