Parents and administrators at Tillicum Community Annex Elementary School are challenging community members to ride to the top of Mount Seymour to help raise funds to build a new playground and community gathering space at their small inner city school.
"This is going to be a fabulous event that should appeal to anyone interested in helping inner-city schools or cycling," says Deena Kotak, Vice Principal at Tillicum Annex. "We're encouraging everyone to come out June 3 for this ride."
Ride for Recess will kick off the morning of Sunday, June 3 at 10 AM at the base of Mount Seymour. The ride is only 12.5 km, but it is 1000m of steady climbing at a 7.5% grade. Organizers expect that it'll be a tough but satisfying ride.
Tillicum PAC Chair Kathleen Deacon says the school is in desperate need of a new playground.The new playground and community space will cost the school community approximately $50,000.
