On June 4th, 2012, Ottawa resident Ashley Gilbank began inline skating from St. John’s, NFLD and will continue across the country until she reaches Victoria, BC. Her journey will take her through 10 provinces in 4 months, adding up to 10,000km, while she raises awareness and funds for D.I.F.D. and youth mental health.
Ashley’s fundraising goal is to raise $60,000. Please click here to donate.
I would encourage you to donate and share her journey with others and encourage them to donate too.
You can follow her journey on Twitter and Facebook, and find out more on her website: www.skate4life2012.com
Ashley is slated to arrive in Ottawa on Wednesday, July 18th at ~1:00pm on Parliament Hill.
On Saturday, July 21, 2012, Pro Hockey Life is also going to be hosting a BBQ to welcome Ashley back to her home city. It will be held at their Pro Hockey Life, 2420 Bank Street (Bank Street & Hunt Club) from 1:00-4:00pm
Please contact Ashley’s husband, Pierre St. Germain, to confirm both these dates and times and let him know if you would like to be a part of welcoming her to Ottawa at email@example.com / 613-263-3492.
