FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – This past weekend’s Ride for the Peace raised close to $15,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Joanna Webster says that the ride on Saturday from Peace Island Park to the WAC Bennett Dam went exceptionally well. Webster says that the riders that participated in this year’s inaugural ride enjoyed perfect weather, with the exception of one or two brief sprinkles. Webster added that other than a pair of flat tires, the ride went off without a hitch.

The ride was put on by Blizzard Bike Club vice president Dan Webster after his son Sam was diagnosed with Type 1, commonly known as juvenile diabetes, last year. Sam himself participated in the ride on Saturday with the 17 other riders. Joanna Webster says that though the final tally has not been done, she estimates that riders surpassed their $12,000 goal, and raised close to $15,000 in total.
