MV Colts Present Cheque To Rural AB Ride For Dad

Monday, June 25th 2012 07:00

Following their golf tournament on Saturday the Mountain View Colts presented a large cheque to the Ride For Dad. The Rural Chapter of the Ride stopped in at the Didsbury Golf Course after making a trip around the Drumheller Loop from Olds.

Fittingly a rural Alberta hockey team was one of the biggest contributors to the rural Alberta Ride For Dad.

As part of their annual charity game at the Didsbury Memorial Complex in February, the Mountain View Colts collected $20,000 for the cause.

Dean Harper with the Rural Alberta Chapter of the Ride For Dad says it is an amazing total for a hockey team at any level to raise.
