Business EDEN course results in Test of Humanity

by Arnica Rowan

Several faculty and family, staff, and students from the Business Administration Department and the Practical Nursing Program (including David Northcott, Sheilagh Seaton, Lynn Sparling, Dana Susheski and Susie Duval) travelled to Ethiopia this spring to work with Canadian Humanitarian as part of the Entrepreneurship and Development in Emerging Nations (EDEN) course.

Following their unforgettable experience, the group is now launching the first annual Test of Humanity Mountain Bike Race in Summerland on Sept. 25, 2011 to help raise funds to support Canadian Humanitarian’s projects in Ethiopia as well as support the South Okanagan Food Bank.

Beginner to expert mountain bikers of all ages and abilities will be racing in the Test of Humanity endurance mountain bike race. The main event of the day is a four-hour endurance race for open and elite mountain bikers, but the day will also include races for
beginners, juniors and kids. Fun and games for kids will be provided and there will be food and prizes supplied by many sponsors and charity volunteers.

All financial proceeds from the race will be used to support Canadian Humanitarian and its projects in Ethiopia and food donations, which are part of the registration fee, will be collected to support the South Okanagan Food Bank.
