RBC to Match Donations up to $5,000

Posted on

RBC Wealth Management investment advisors, Don Somers, Brian Balfe, and Sean Martin are ready to make your donations grow for this year’s Comox Bike Co. YANA Ride! 

Between July 16-25, they have set a goal of helping YANA supporters raise $10,000 in just 10 days. All donations made to YANA Ride participants will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $5,000. 

The Comox Bike Co. YANA Ride is one of the organization’s largest annual fundraisers. Last year’s virtual event was a huge success, despite setbacks brought on by Covid restrictions. 

YANA’s executive director Kelly Barnie explains, “We are so grateful to this community’s generosity through a difficult year for everyone. The need for support remains integral to families in our community, and we are so grateful to these three generous donors who have stepped up to double donations for this year’s Ride.”

It’s easy to make sure your donation is matched! Between 9am on July 16th and 11:59pm on July 25th:

  1. Make a pledge to a rider
  2. Head to YANA’s Facebook or Instagram @YANAComoxValley, like the “10 Grand in 10 Days” post
  3. Comment on that same post tagging the name of the rider you supported.

There’s never been a better time to make a difference with your dollars and show your support for Comox Valley families!
