Grassroots Grannies Update


In last week’s newsletter, I was happy to share that the Grassroots Grannies from Stittsville had embarked on their cycling journey in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s “Grandmothers to Grandmothers” campaign.


The team and my office would like to thank residents for all of their support in exceeding the fundraising goal and contributing approximately $60,000 in support of African grandmothers whose lives have been devastated HIV/AIDS.


The team departed from the Bushtukah on 5607 Hazeldean Road at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, September 6th and returned Friday afternoon, September 8th. The cyclists passed through Ashton, Appleton, Almonte, Perth, Merrickville and Metcalfe.
