St. Josephat Kunsevich  Council 13129 in Saskatoon, in partnership with the Sask K of C Charitable Foundation and the Canadian Wheelchair Foundation, is requesting that all Councils and members support the Padre Bikes for Wheels project to provide wheelchairs for people in Ukraine.

To bolster this initiative, Fr. Ivan Nahachewsky will be undertaking a 2000 km long-distance bike ride in Northern Saskatchewan this July. Last year while deployed in Ukraine as a military chaplain, Fr. Ivan saw firsthand the mobility needs of soldiers and civilians, adults and children whose issues would be addressed in part by wheelchairs. “I invite you to join me on an adventure. You can help make people’s lives better. Pray for and donate toward this fundraising project. If nothing else, be thankful to God and celebrate your mobility.”

You can donate online or by cheque. Donors will be recognized by name. Please indicate if you wish to remain anonymous. Cheques can be made to Sask K of C Charitable Foundation, Memo: Padre Bikes, and mailed to P.O. Box 61, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, S6H 4N7.

For further information or to donate online visit: www.padrebikes.ca.

The cost of supplying one wheelchair is $195.00.  If an individual, Council, or Parish makes a donation of $195.00 or greater, in addition to their tax receipt, they will receive a special “Padre Bikes for Wheels” certificate signed by Father Ivan as a token of appreciation.   This certificate will be sent after the fundraising project ends on August 15th, 2021.
