Anyone want to share the ride for a while?

Rod Germaine

To donate by cheque, make it payable to "Just Aid Foundation" and send it to Just Aid Foundation, 300-1275 West 6th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V6H 1A6.

And you can still make a conditional donation in the form of a pledge. Some have pledged to pay between 1 cent and up to 15 cents per kilometer he cycles.

Rod is very grateful to his good friend Soe Naing for the ride to Toronto. He may not have made it without Soe Naing’s company and assistance.

Sincere thanks for all donations, pledges and to everyone who has offered support of any kind.

Thank you ... Finance

I haven't done anything to deserve it but it was such a nice treat by Finance for send-off delicious cakes. My heart felt appreciation and thanks to everyone of you.

I have been overwhelmed with the support of management in helping me realize my dreams. I also appreciate my colleagues who have given me moral support and other forms of help throughout my preparation to bike across Canada. It is more than anything I could have asked for. I am so blessed to be part of the great team of Kwantlen where family and community spirit flourish.
