West Shore’s ALS tour riders ready to hit the road

Gazette reporter Arnold Lim joins two West Shore riders on 500 km fundraiser ride

The ALS Cycle of Hope starts tomorrow (Aug. 7) and two West Shore residents and a Goldstream News Gazette reporter are in the mix.

Residents Andy Harward and Heather McFayden and the Gazette’s Arnold Lim begin their journey from Kamloops to Keremeos, raising money and awareness for families living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

“We are a corporate sponsor, with the event organized from here in Victoria,” said Gazette publisher Penny Sakamoto. “And, the best part, one of our talented photojournalists, Arnold Lim, will be riding all that way.”

Harward and McFayden, and Lim, who rode the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock in 2013, join nine other riders from around Greater Victoria on the ride. The team has been training since March in preparation for the journey, which will see them ride more than 500 kilometres between Aug. 7 and 13.
