The Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers Nanaimo chapter presented $9,100 to the Children’s Wish Foundation

The Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers Nanaimo chapter helped make some wishes come true.

The club presented $9,100 to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada in September at the MCon gaming convention.

The Cruisers raised the money at their national rally in Nanaimo in July. The club thanked donors including WestJet Airlines, Fountain Tire Nanaimo, Panago Pizza and the Lantzville Legion Ladies Auxiliary.
