The Wedgewood Cycling Team held its year end banquet & AGM last night (December 2, 2006) and Cycling BC's Team of the Year for 2006 announced a further donation of $5,000 to the BC Cancer Foundation, taking the total raised by the team so far to over $100'000.
The Team also announced its plans for 2007 which will include a fundraising raffle in the spring with the grand prize being a fully equipped Colnago Navigators Pro Cycling Team road bike to be presented at the Tour de Gastown 2007. The prize will also include a ride with the team in Vancouver and a Navigators team kit.
Dates were announced for the three races presented by the Team.
* The Westside Cycling Classic will run on a new course on June 24th 2007
* the Tour de Gastown, the highlight of the cycling summer in Canada, will be on Wednesday July 18th 2007
* A new and exciting UCI level cyclocross event is planned for New Brighton Park in September.
* The Evening of Champions banquet will return in 2007 and will include stars from the world of cycling and will again be one of the Team's main fundraising initiatives of 2007.
"We are very pleased to be able to donate to the BC Cancer Foundation again this year, it really is a testament to the hard work of our members and the generosity of our sponsors," explained Philip Meyer, a director of Wedgewood Cycling Team. Meyer not only gave credit to all the team sponsors whom he announced have all re-signed with the team for a further two years, but also the race sponsors for all Wedgewood Cycling Team events.
"Quite frankly without these sponsors these types of events would not be possible in the City of Vancouver. Supporters like Formwerks Architecture, Stonefield Development, and Navigators Insurance have all helped with our success this year," Meyer continued.
The Wedgewood Cycling Team organises all its events in support of the BC Cancer Foundation, for more information on the team and their events please visit www.teamwedgewood.com.
