NEW PROGRAMS

From time to time, a member comes up with a great idea that we know will be a very successful fundraiser. 

In 2021, we started the KCR EMERGENCY FUND and it turned out to be a good thing indeed, with tornadoes and fires and motorcycle accidents, we exhausted the fund and then some. This year we need your help to replenish the fund so that we can again help out families in our community that come on hard times through no fault of their own. Check out the WHEEL OF NAMES fundraiser below to see how you can help...
__________

In 2022, we announced a new program that benefits kids of all ages. BIKES FROM BIKERS is designed to provide bicycles (new and used) to BGC (Boys and Girls Club) who will then distribute the bicycles to kids and teens who would otherwise not be able to get one. Look below to see how this program works...

WHEEL OF NAMES

The Wheel of Names is our preferred way to host an online raffle. We are always looking for donations of items to include in the raffle. All proceeds of the raffle go to support the KCR Emergency Fund. 

PLEASE VISIT THE WEBSITE OFTEN AND
FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK (@KCRRC2021) & INSTAGRAM (@kcr_rc)
TO KEEP UP TO DATE ON THE NEXT RAFFLE!

BIKES FROM BIKERS

This event was a great success. In less than 2 hours we gave away over $8000 in bicycles. The need for this program is overwhelming. We will be doing the same thing again next year with a few tweaks to how we do it along the way.

To donate money, message us on Facebook, send an e-mail to info@kcr-rc.ca, send an e-transfer to donations@kcr-rc.ca with “Bikes From Bikers” in the comment section or as always contact a KCR member.

Thank you to all those who donated bicycles this year. We would also like to thank Canadian Tire & Sportchek (Lindsay Stores), Cochrane Property Maintenance, and Keeley Ward Realtor for their generous donations to the program.
