Proceeds going to the Canadian Electric Wheelchair Hockey Association
On April 21, 2006, Ian Langford passed away at home, surrounded by his loving family at the age of 23. Muscular Dystrophy claimed his body; however, Ian lived his life fully, passionately, and without regrets. Ian, like over 100 Electric Wheelchair athletes in the GTA, was a player in the CEWHA and a champion in the truest sense of the word.
Dean Hachey, 40 of Claremont, Ontario has been a volunteer with the CEWHA for the past 15 years of the 26 year old league. In April of this year, Dean was elected the new President of the CEWHA Toronto Division by its board of governors, and is responsible for running the Division.
As a tribute to Ian, and the players, past and present in the CEWHA, Dean is embarking on a marathon mountain bike ride in an effort to raise awareness and critically needed funding for the league. Dean will be attempting to mountain bike for 48 hours straight starting a 6pm on Friday, July 21st in the Durham Forest. A 10km loop will be set up and Dean has set a target of completing 60 loops (600 km’s) during his epic ride.
There are many ways you can show your support.
1) Come out and complete a loop in Durham Forest any time during the 24 hours. Dean will enjoy the company and your encouragement. A $20 donation per rider will be collected by players from the CEWHA in the Durham Forest Head of Trails parking lot (see map attached). Bring out the whole family. Refreshments will be available.
2) Sponsor Dean’s ride in one of 2 ways, per km, or a flat amount. If you sponsor a penny per km, and Dean completes 600 km’s, your contribution would be $6 (ten cent’s per km = $60 etc).
You can make a pledge in several ways:
1) Go to our website at: www.cewha.ca and click on the Toronto Division link. An online pledge form is on our home page.
