Kids with Cancer Ride
Twelve years ago, Len Spratt decided to jump in to the Kids With Cancer Society’s Tour of Hope bicycle ride. He admits he had little knowledge of what the ride was about, but he fell in love with the event and has made it his personal mission.
Over the years, the Kehewin Gas Utility manager has become a Ride Leader and a Business Consultant with the Tour of Hope. With 12 rides under his belt, Len has been able to raise over $80,000 for the Kids With Cancer Society!
Len credits the ingrained desire of rural Alberta to help others in need as the key to his success, with a culture of generosity that extends through the rural gas co-ops, the Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops, and Gas Alberta Inc.
The Kids With Cancer Society is an Alberta-based charity serving children with cancer and their families across Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
Their mission is to assist children facing cancer, and their families, to better navigate their journey from diagnosis through cure, regardless of how long that might take.
They offer family counselling, financial support, and a wide range of programs and services from classroom awareness for the child’s peers, to bedside education and camp participation.
