Hello again!

After taking last year off I will be riding again this year in the 2019 Jumpstart Pedal for Kids. My 6th ride in the past 7 years. And I did finish them all, maybe not quickly!

This is a 5 day, 500 km fundraising ride to help make sure all kids can participate in sports and activities ranging from dance to hockey.  I know you all get many requests for important charities and I appreciate any support that you can provide.

The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.

We all know how critical participation in sports is for childrens physical, mental and social development. And its a fun way for kids to develop selfconfidence and lifelong healthy habits. Yet many families find it difficult to financially support sports for their kids. Particularly in places like Alberta where many families are still suffering from the economic downturn.

While Jumpstart supports some high profile events much of its support goes quietly to children in need in order to avoid stigmatizing them. Its is highly likely that there are children who played on teams alongside our kids or our neighbours kids because of the support their families obtained from Jumpstart. 

I have many fond memories from the previous rides but the best are the looks on the kids faces when we visited their schools with our sports equipment for their gym programs. Even in some of the wealthier  cities in Canada there are schools that serve a large number of kids from financially challenged families. We have had principals tell us they have had to choose between lunch programs and sports equipment. Jumpstart helps fill these gaps. 

Since inception in 2005 Jumpstart has helped over 1,800,000 million kids participate in sports and recreational activities.

Please support me and make a secure online donation. The Pedal for Kids Ride will raise funds to help thousands of kids get off the sidelines and into the game.

Thanks again for all of your support.

Dave Ross
