2013 Tour

Tour Schedule

The group will be leaving from Headingley Tim Hortons on Monday, September 9, 2013 and arriving in Tofino, B.C. on Friday, September 13, 2013.

How the “West for Wishes” tour will work . . .

Our relay team consists of athletic officers from various areas of the Winnipeg Police Service who love to cycle. Our 16 member team will be divided into 4 sub-teams. Each one of these sub-teams will cycle a daily 8 hour – 200 km shift, before turning over the tour to the next sub-team of riders for their shift. The tour, expected to take 4 days, will go non-stop, in relay fashion, rain or shine, day and night until the 2,600 km have been completed and we arrive in Tofino.

To ensure successful fundraising, team members dedicate themselves to the task of raising funds on their own time. We seek corporate donations, but also use pledge sheets to encourage personal donations from family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and the general public. No donation is too small, but all donations of $20.00 or more receive an official tax receipt from The Children’s Wish Foundation.

  • Pledge any member of the team
  • Make a general donation to the Foundation in the name of this year’s tour
  • As a business or corporation, donate through one of the corporate packages
