After reviewing logistics and availabilities we have come to the conclusion that we are not able to pull together the many resources required to hold a Ride For Will this year. We hope to plan another Ride For Will on a scale similar to previous years when it feels right to do so.

This year we’d like to give our Organizing Committee and the event’s many volunteers a much needed break from their tireless efforts and instead do something a little different. On that note, we encourage all of you to set aside some time and do your own personal bike ride for ice cream and a BBQ with your families in honour of Will. After all, it is the treasured memories of time with each other that is the greatest gift and honour we can bestow on Will’s legacy.

Because of you the previous five annual Rides For Will have been a heartwarming success and beyond what we could have ever imagined. The charitable foundation set up in his memory is in good shape and continues to support many worthy children’s charities and family grief support programs. We are ever grateful to all of you for your continued support, generosity, and kindness.

This website has been developed to honor Will, to keep his memory alive, and to raise funds through his Foundation (The Will Bouchard Memorial Foundation).  His Foundation will benefit worthwhile charities that focus on the needs of children as well as funding grief support programs for families that are grieving the loss of a child.  We also hope to provide resources and support for anyone experiencing grief or who may need a little “Willpower” to help get through a difficult time.

Thank you for helping us keep Will’s legacy alive, for supporting his Foundation through a tax deductible donation and/or for participating in our annual Ride For Will.
