The first day of the trip got off to an excellent start! We all arrived in Calgary on time with all of our luggage. The cyclist set up a mobile bike-shop outside of our hotel in about 5 minutes and started to put together their bikes while the support team picked up the RV. We all went out for dinner at the Cattle Barn in Calgary with a few special guests; Kylie and Jason from the Children’s Wish Foundation as well as a Wish Kid named Abdul and his mother. There were speeches and laughs and a few tears as well. We learnt at the dinner that with each child the Children’s Wish Foundation touches, they are also touching all the family and friends of that child, helping to build a community and bring families back together. All in all our first day together was one of bonding and learning about how our actions are truly helping.
