30th Anniversary

Jim Walsh Bike Ride

for Kids with Cancer

starting July 5



This annual ride is named after Jim Walsh also greatly known as “Jimbo the Hobo”. He was a near-legendary community fundraiser who over the years with the support of his family, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various children’s charities through a range of events including bike rides.

Denis Larocque is keeping Jim’s legacy alive by hosting the Jim Walsh Bike Ride For Kids With Cancer and this year we are expanding to include walkers as well as riders!

Proceeds donated to Help A Child Smile.

Description of the bike ride:

The Jim Walsh Bike Ride for Kids With Cancer will be a two week long event beginning July 5 where participants ride or walk trails of their choice making it easy and convenient for everyone of all ages to get involved.

You are encouraged to send us pictures of your day then join us for an end-of-ride bbq and party at the Knights Hall in Brantford on Saturday July 17.

Participants get a free meal and commemorative T-shirt! A $100 prize will be awarded to the top riding fundraiser, the top walking fundraiser and the top youth-under 17- fundraiser!

Celebrate with us as we continue to Help Child Smile and honour the legacy of Jim “Jimbo The Hobo” Walsh.
