One Aim Ride the Rim Event

Posted on: July 29th, 2016 by Movement Sports Clinic No Comments

On June 24 and 25, 2016 riders from the One Aim Cycling Club persisted through incredibly inclement weather to ride their bikes for 24 hours. Their goal was to raise funds for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer in August.

One Aim LogoThe route was 8km loops through the Parkland neighborhood in southeast Calgary. Movement Sports Clinic offered aid to the riders to help keep them rolling. Organizers had created a cozy and warm treatment space behind the food area for the physiotherapists to work on injured or fatigued participants.

Jill Farmer, Tyson Plesuk and Louise Taylor all spent time at the event to provide 24-hour coverage and were pleased to help team members with issues like neck strain, calf cramp, sciatic irritability and muscle stiffness.

The weather was horrendous with rain and stormy conditions through most of the event. The riders were impressive in their dedication to their fundraising effort and training through the cold and wet environment.

Special thanks to One Aim rider Sonya Bertrand for inviting Movement Sports Clinic to provide support, to Peggy MacDonald for her enthusiasm and amazing skills as chief organizer and to Nigel Brockton for his inspiration in the One Aim effort to fundraise to aid cancer research.

The event raised over $15,000.

Congratulations One Aim!
