Sponsor the 600km Ride!

On October 27-29 Jamie & Julie Popoff, together with friends of the company, will bike the total kilometers from Calgary to Saskatoon to tangibly pass the Burnt Thicket torch. They’ll be joined by our board president Andy Wilson, incoming artistic director Stephen Waldschmidt, his wife Kirsten and three kids, and a host of others, adding all our kms to ride a minimum of 600km by Oct 29. The Popoffs have committed to ride up to 465km on the highway to SK so that they’ll end the ride in Saskatoon.

You’ve given $5,810 so far!

Your generosity has brought us 48% of the way to our goal of raising $12,000! (that’s $20 per km cycled x 600km) Partner with us to ensure Burnt Thicket’s enlivening stories are experienced by Canadians for another 10 years! All gifts over $10 will receive a charitable tax receipt from our office.
