This summer Community Living Wallaceburg is at it again, the third year in a row, hosting the 3 Rivers Roll Bike Party. The event brings together people of all ages, abilities and bikes to have fun and discover more about the Agency and our town, going to areas that they otherwise may not have visited before. The first event is Tuesday June 18th at the Wallaceburg Legion with a BBQ at 5pm and the ride leaving for 7pm.
“We are excited for this year as we have added a new element of theming each event. This gives the bike riders a unique experience throughout the summer. Our first ride is themed Health and Wellness with activities such as Yoga, Exercise demonstrations, a Gymnastic Centre, a Sensory Area and much more!” says Alisha Allaer, Communications and Fund Development Associate at Community Living Wallaceburg.
The most unique part of this event is that it’s not a race, but a slow roll promoting inclusion, socializing and community comradery. And the best part is that, thanks to the generous sponsors of this event, it’s FREE for people to take part!
“We’re so pleased that the community embraced the idea of this event the past 2 summers. Everyone had a great time and really got into it by bringing their own music,” says Allaer. “This event is all about inclusion and welcoming everyone.”
While there is no fee to attend, donations are being accepted to help continue to raise vital funds to find ways to overcome barriers for people with developmental disabilities. With your support, we can continue to invest in creating opportunities for people to participate in recreational and social activities.
Community Living Wallaceburg has plans under way to host two more 3Rivers Roll bike parties one on July 17th at The Oak Retirement Village and one August 15 th at Eternities Touch. Further information can be found on their website at http://www.3RiversRoll.com.
