Ride to Benefit Renowned Master Cyclist and Friend Ilija Petrovski
As many of you know, Ilija sustained a traumatic brain injury on January 9, 2012 and currently requires around-the-clock specialized care. The Ontario cycling community has benefitted tremendously from Ilija's knowledge and passion for racing, and now we'd like to give back to help his family provide the best possible care.
100% of the funds raised will be used to pay for costs not covered by OHIP (about $75/day) and our goal is to raise enough funds for one full year of care, $27,500. As Ilija was self-employed and didn't have supplemental insurance coverage, the funds raised by this ride will truly make a difference to Ilija and his family.
We have a great day planned including either a 50km or 100km ride, followed by a BBQ at Richmond Green in Richmond Hill. If you can't make the ride, please join us for the BBQ and a fun time!
