Biking across Canada has been Bill’s personal dream and he is now living his dream, as Bill is a caring person he included to help the community of Yekooche.

Yekooche First Nation is based 75 kilometers northwest of Fort St. James, British Columbia at the north end of Stuart Lake on Yekooche reserves (about 380 hectares in size).

Yekooche is a small community reserve. As of March 2008, there are 217 band members of which 130 live on the Yekooche reserves. Near to Yekooche are Babine, Cunningham and Whitefish Lakes. These places are used to collect winter food for families.

The funds that are raised will be put towards educational programs and resources for the community. If you would like to make a donation, you may do so at any one of Carrier Sekani Family Services three offices, located in Prince George, Vanderhoof and Burns Lake.
