#RideJamesRide, Grandview Kids week details & RUN AJAX in support of Grandview Kids update!
James Potvin and his dad Chris pose for a photo before heading off on their journey from Whitby to Ottawa.
#RIDEJAMESRIDE
James Potvin did the unimaginable. The 9-year-old Whitby boy with autism rode his bike from Whitby to Ottawa with his dad Chris, raising over $10,000 for Grandview Children's Centre.
James is a Grandview Kid himself. He's on the wait list just like more than 3,000 other children and youth with special needs.
"We learned 'we can!'" said James' dad Chris. "This was a big accomplishment because James kept riding one more kilometre. By tackling tiny steps we accomplish great things! That's similar to what it is like to build a new treatment centre or to build up a kid who is struggling. One dollar, one brick, or one step at a time, we can accomplish great things."
James has inspired other Grandview Kids to reach their personal best by taking part in the upcoming RUN AJAX Grandview Kids 1k race.
There's still time to signup for RUN AJAX in support of Grandview Kids on October 1st!
With your support, we can change the lives of Grandview Kids. Grandview Children's Centre serves over 6,000 kids every year. There are more than 3,000 on the wait list. Every dollar fundraised helps us help more children and youth with special needs in Durham Region.
This year we are celebrating Grandview Kids week from September 24 to October 1, 2017.
