BIKE 4 BRICKS UPDATE! $22,608.70 RAISED SO FAR
Heartwood Place is excited to announce that three young men from our community cycled across Canada in support of our organization and raised over $22,600 to support affordable housing in our community. Jordan Schmidt, Kyle Martin and Tyler Cadman left Waterloo on June 17 and cycled to St. John's Newfoundland where they dipped their bike wheels into the ocean. They then flew to Vancouver and continued their journey across the Canadian west, arriving at Kitchener City Hall on August 7. There were loud cheers and congratulations from their friends and family who welcomed them home! Special thanks to Doug Mochrie of M.O. Social Media, Royal Distributing and Marin Bikes for exceptional support.

While receiving national recognition for being an exceptional course, Westmount should also be recognized for its commitment to our community.
