"Mr. Hogg has always been an amazing supporter of our charity work with Variety. He is an incredible individual who has done so much for our entire community! It did not surprise me one bit when he showed enthusiasm towards the idea of joining the Shore2Shore team when we present our final cheque," said Shore2Shore leader, Eric Kameka.
The Shore2Shore group will be taking the stage at the Variety Show of Hearts from 8am - 10am, this Sunday February 13th.
Along with Gordon Hogg, Damian O'Hagan, store owner of Peninsula Cycles, will be joining 8 of the fire fighters.
"Damian was a monster part of Shore2Shore. Not only did he come along on the ride and log in some huge miles on the road, he also somehow found the energy to maintain all the team bikes every evening! Between Dam, Les and the rest of the guys at the store, we owe them a huge thank you! Those guys were an unbelievable help to the overall success of the ride. We are stoked that Damian will be a part of the final chapter of Shore2Shore this weekend," said Kameka.
Keep your eyes open for the Shore2Shore team! The group will be answering phones, taking pledges and donating a cheque for $45,513. With the $20,000 that was donated last year, the event totalled $65,513!
