Our club has operated since last summer. The funds to pay for the rent of the Harry Jerome stadium that houses this superb 200 metre cycling bowl have come exclusively from your membership dues. We can be proud of that. Now is the time to go beyond!
We, as members, need to go beyond, in order to enjoy this incredible facility to its fullest. The next jump means, raising money for programs that will further enhance The Burnaby Velodrome Club, as well as the finest and only indoor velodrome facility in North America.
A highly successful fund raiser will pave the way to achieve greater things by having this facility in our neighbourhood. Not only do we need money to pay the rent, we need money for programs to teach new people the experience of riding the track and bicycles to be available that are suitable for kids, intermediate and athletes from all sports, so they may also enjoy the "rush on the boards".
LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER! Pull out all stops and help us surpass our initial goal of $160.00 a member in pledges ($1.00 PER KLICK!), and roll into spring and summer with a long red carpet under our wheels.
Take up the challenge as an individual, or as a relay team consisting of:
Two as a team
Three as a team
Four as a team
