Strathmore Boulevard Block Party and the Inside Ride Fundraiser

Members of the Jennifer Wood Campaign Team participated in the Inside Ride at the First Annual Strathmore Boulevard Block Party on Saturday, July 10. I rode alongside Genevieve Kenny, Christian Isaac, Ali Abaza, Barb Lockhart, Dennis Diemert, for 10 minutes a piece full out in the heat for a respectable 3rd place finish! Team Wood also won the prize for best costume, as we rode in our bright Jennifer Wood Campaign T-shirts.

The Inside Ride is produced by the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation (, a national foundation dedicated to improving the survival rate and quality of life for kids and their families living with and beyond childhood cancer. It was a wonderful community event that included a bouncy castle donated by the firefighters from Station 332, fantastic dance music, a raffle and lots of treats.

Many people from Strathmore and the surrounding neighbourhood turned out to celebrate and socialize. Jennifer's Team raised $300 for this event.

Thanks to my wonderful volunteers for coming out to support the campaign and this wonderful cause.
