Rideau Winter Trail
John is happy to sponsor the “Rideau Winter Trail”. This trail is a free winter trail that accommodates cross country skiers, snowshoers, fat bikers, & walkers in the Vanier, Sandy Hill & Overbrook neighbourhoods. This trail promotes fun, healthy, family-friendly outdoor activities in the winter!
The 57 Ride has been running for 8 years. This community cycling event is organized and executed by John to help raise funds for the Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation. This event brings the joy of cycling together with amazing people to support a wonderful cause. All proceeds raised go directly to Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation. This year the ride will be on October 3rd, 2021. Donate $1 for every km you ride- whether it be 2km with the kids or 100 km with a socially distanced bike crew. Ride at sunrise or sunset, just ride that day and tag #57rideforphoebe on your social media.

Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation
The Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation was founded in 2016 in memory of Phoebe Rose Doull-Hoffman to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. This organization is near and dear to John and his family.
Phoebe’s family and community established the Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation to foster positive change within the childhood cancer community. Their mission is to support families who need to travel for treatment (more than 200kms) and to raise funds for childhood cancer research with a specific focus on difficult to treat and cure childhood cancers.
The Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation became an official registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency in April 2017.
