Ride to Gold River for Jeneese Place

In support of Jeneece Place in Victoria, the Campbell River Rotary Club is holding its inaugural “Ride to Gold River” on Saturday.

Jeneece Place is the “home away from home” for families who must travel to Victoria for medical care.

“Island bikers, and everyone else who loves a ride through the mountains on a beautiful day, is invited to join the adventure,” says ride organizer Brian Shaw.

Riders can register with a $15 donation before the ride departs or online at

After arriving in Gold River, there will be live outdoor entertainment, door prizes and a silent auction at Pipers on the Ridge Pub. The ride will leave Gold River well before darkness sets in.
