Cross Canada Grandpas

Congratulations to the Cross Canada Grandpas for completing their Cross-Canada bike riding adventure.

It is not too late to support Mike Tanner by makeing a donation to St. Jospeh's Hospice of Sarnia Lambton. This cause is very personal to Mike. His late wife, Dr. Linda Bowring was an early pioneer in the field of End of Life Care. Tragically, she died of cancer in 2003. Mike rode across Canada to raise funds for Hospice and Palliative Care Program.
