This year’s Evan’s Ride for Autism was a huge success, raising well over $15,000 for Autism Ontario- Niagara chapter.
“The ride was fantastic. The weather was perfect and tons of fun was had by all,” said event organizer and Evan’s father Len Sheldrake.

This year’s event was such a success thanks to the great community support, he added.
“We had a great new addition to the ride this year, Mike MacQueen’s Foodland raised over $1,200 with customers donating their change and adding their names on the Evan’s Ride Wall,” explained Sheldrake. “It was very overwhelming to see the continued support from our small community. They have really embraced this ride of hope.”
This year, virtually every business in Smithville was involved in some way. Again this year, Biggs and Barr from 97.7 HTZ FM were there to host.
The event had over 70 participants. Len and Evan would like to thank everyone who participated and sponsored the event, making it the most successful ride yet.
