From Quesnel to Vancouver and its all for the kids

Rob and Archie are pedalling for BC Children’s Hospital, namely Pediatrics/Neurology/Epilepsy.

With just under two weeks and six days Two passionate road cyclists and community minded individuals from Quesnel’s Amarjit Singh Sull (Archie) Quesnel Volunteer Firefighter/SD #28 Teacher and Rob Gardner Quesnel Cariboo Ford Service Manager will begin cycling from Quesnel to Whistler to Vancouver into B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Rob and Archie are pedalling for BC Children’s Hospital, namely Pediatrics/Neurology/Epilepsy. By cycling they are providing hope for children and it’s a positive opportunity to embrace and come together and learn how BC Children’s Hospital contributes to our community.

BC Children’s Hospitals contributions have allowed more than 81,000 children to receive expert care every year, thus allowing the children to grow to their full potential.

We are two passionate community minded individuals encouraging collaboration.

We are looking for ways to reinforce the growth of society and link it back to the overall growth of our community.

We have found that the best way to achieve this understanding and growth is by organizing this more than 600km cycling ride, with the goal of increasing awareness of pediatrics, epilepsy and the work in neuroscience.

We are both goal oriented individuals driven with a purpose that is similar to our major sponsor Cariboo Ford.

Ford’s mission statement is based on the idea of “One Team, One Plan, One Goal.”

As individuals, we are very excited to take on this challenge of helping the more than 1,000 children admitted to the Pediatrics Intensive Care Unit at BC Children’s Hospital every year.

Children’s Hospital is a very special place for Amarjit and Balj Sull.

Their daughter Jaden has been treated there by the wonderful staff for her epilepsy and seizures.

“The love and passion that the volunteers bring everyday, all the way to the paid staff gets me emotional every time I think or hear of Children’s.”

We want to show everybody our dreams.

We want to be the positive influence in peoples lives.

We look around at everybody everyday and say to ourselves, “because of you, we are not giving up.”

Facts for Quesnel about BC Children’s

BCCHF had 221 unique individual patients  from Quesnel who were inpatients or visited surgical daycare, the emergency room, ambulatory care, outpatients clinics and diagnostic/therapeutic services during 2013.

“If you can get a child to smile through their tears, it’s as if time stops and nothing else matters in that moment.”

The biggest goal we have cycling for BC Children’s Hospital is making a difference in a child’s life.

I feel that our life hero in earth is not measured by time but instead by the people we’ve touched and the impact we’ve had on their lives.

We are motivated by the passion of all those involved at BC Children’s which keeps the passion alive.

Quesnel Cycling is Rob Gardner and Armajit (Archie) Sull. They are riding from Quesnel to Whistler to Vancouver this summer to raise funds for the B.C. Children’s hospital.
