Spirit of Hope – Habitat for Humanity

680 CJOB is proud to support Habitat for Humanity’s Spirit of Hope event August 23 – 27, 2021.

The Spirit of Hope is a supported, cycling adventure along the shores of Lake Winnipeg.

Cyclists will enjoy a moderately challenging, 5-day loop from Winnipeg to the Northern tip of Hecla Island. Along the way, the team will have a chance to relive their childhood at Camp Arnes where they can experience summer camp activities, campfires and indoor accommodations.

Your fundraising efforts will help a Habitat family build strength, stability and independence.
