COVID-19 came with many difficulties regarding health and mental strength, not only for adults, but as well for children. These hard times demand additional efforts to bring smiles and joy to children, especially the most vulnerable, and ill ones.
For this reason, I decided to challenge myself with physical and mental endeavor by doing a 24 hours continuous indoor bike ride to support Starlight Children’s Foundation® Canada and make a difference in the lives of seriously ill children and their families during this time of social distancing and isolation.
The ride is going to take place on Friday, May 15th at 11:00 EDT on Zwift, which is a digital bike simulator.
Starlight Canada has been dedicated to brightening the lives of seriously ill children and their families for over 30 years. Focusing on the family as a whole, their mission is to bring joy, laughter, relief and a whole lot of smiles. Their large variery of in-hospital and outpatient programs help bring back some strength, hope and lost childhood by being that reliable and shining star in a dark and stormy sky.
There are many wonderful Starlight programs, but we have decided that supporting their newest emergency program called “Play from Home Packs” is the most important at this time. Starlight needs to ship over 2,000 Play From Home Packs to seriously ill children and their families across the country that are currently isolated at home due to COVID-19. The package will contain board games, crafts and other interactive activities. Many of these will involve a national group activity where all children will be logging on to Facebook live with special guests including Starlight's very own Captain Starlight.
With a generous donation of $100 today, YOU can send a kit to a Starlight family stuck at home and bring smiles, laughter and joy directly into their living room.
