2016 was the final year for the Alberta Wish Ride. Co-founders Irene White and Roger Matas announced they were stepping down after eight great years of supporting the Children's Wish
Foundation and also retiring the brand and event name.
Roger and Irene are grateful for all the support they've received over the years from volunteers, riders and donors. The event made a big difference in the lives of many children and everyone who participated should be very proud.
The 2016 donation takes the event to close to $350,000 in donations to Children's Wish.
The Alberta Wish Ride has always been a legacy to Irene's father Walter who ran rides in B.C. for many years. The Alberta Wish Ride was a spin-off from Walter's events.
