The legend: Good luck, good health, good wealth, longevity and happiness will be granted to anyone who carries a pebble from one shore to another. It can be a far away shore or one close to home… from the Irish Sea to the North Sea, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, from Crescent Beach to White Rock beach. One person can carry pebbles for many, as long as the many give a heartfelt gift to support seniors.
On Tuesday, September 27, 2011 a handful of local celebrity and media types (including me!) will be peddling pebbles – yes, pebbles – from Crescent Beach to White Rock beach. The event is called Pebble Pedal to the Pier and it is in support of Seniors’ and Volunteer Programs for Sources Community Resources Society.
Serving the White Rock community, Sources answers 30,000 calls for help each year. Volunteers drive for seniors, answer calls for information and work with families in distress. The food bank, treatment facilities, group homes and family and individual counselling services are among the many programs provided by Sources Community Resource Centres.
I would really appreciate your support in sponsoring pebbles for this amazing event! Please go to www.sourcesbc.ca (scroll down home page) to sponsor one pebble for $20, a family of pebbles for $60 or a handful of pebbles for $100. You will receive a tax receipt for your donation and a certificate acknowledging your support as a Pebble Sponsor.
We would also love it if you would join us at 5PM at White Rock Pier on September 27th, as us riders arrive from our journey from Crescent Beach. There will be entertainment, cake and our welcome ceremony! Your support and cheers would be very much appreciated!
Sources Community Resources Centre does fantastic work and I’m excited to be involved in this fundraising event!
