Bicycle Nova Scotia is happy to announce a contribution of $1,000.00 from La Traversee Jimmy Pelletier to support Paracycling in Nova Scotia.

La Traversee Jimmie Pelletier is a Cross-Canada Tour lead by para-athlete Jimmy Pelletier to raise funds to support para-athleticim throughout Canada. On each stop, Mr Pelletier was able to both offer donations to organizations that support Canadians with physical or mental disabilities, and raise over $500,000.00 to continue to support athletes of all abilities. On hand to accept the donation was BNS VP of Gender, Equity and Inclusion, Darryl Osborne. Darryl has been hard at work increasing access to para-cycles by first launching a set of try-a-ride para-events at the Canada Games Centre in April, and hosting a weekly Para-Club at the Emera Oval on Thursday nights from 6:45pm to 7:45pm.

Although Mr Pelletier’s cross-Canada tour by hand bike is over, his foundation is still accepting donations to support para-athleticism in Canada.
