Children's Rehabilitation FoundationThe 19th annual RBC Cruisin’ Down the Crescent pulled in more than $150,000 on Sunday.

The event drew over 875 participants and 140 volunteers in support of Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation — making it their largest fundraiser of the year.

Funds support Manitoba children living with disabilities and special needs. The family friendly event is an all-ages one, where people can walk, jog, roll, bike and skate down Wellington Crescent, from the Rehabilitation Centre for Children to the gates of Assiniboine Park and back (approx. 10 km). Money is raised through pledges, sponsorship, raffles and silent auction.

This year’s event raised $151,086.00, the third highest ever made in the 19 year history of the event.
