Help SHLF to make a difference

The overall goal of the bike ride is to honour Strachan Hartley’s legacy through an extraordinary journey, create awareness of our cause and raise significant funds for the Foundation. The Make a Difference Marathon is asking You to help us meet our goals by pledging to this important cause. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will benefit the Foundation and will provide under-privileged youth and families with sports and educational opportunities to help them reach their full potential.
