AAA-2017

 

 

About Against All Abuse.

 

 

On August 2, 2012 we lost my cousin, Chris Ball to a senseless act of random violence. He was a son, a brother, a friend and a great hearted man who meant the world to a lot of people. The way he was taken was beyond unacceptable and will forever burn an empty hole in our hearts and souls.

In 2013 we held a memorial ride for Chris and started an organization called Against All Abuse in hopes of something positive coming from this horrific tragedy...it was a great success with almost 40 participants. After some deliberation, we decided to do it again this year and come together with the objective to make this an annual event and eventually making it national. We are now in the process to become registered with Revenue Canada as a non profit which can issue tax deductible receipts. With this umbrella and the template we will have after this year's event, we hope to show other organizations and municipalities what we are doing and how they can duplicate it and as a result help more people who are part of this horrible reality of violence and abuse.

 

We are having a Fundraiser/Poker Run this Saturday July 23rd for motorbikes and passengers which starts at Brooklyn Pizza in Royal Oak at 8-9:00am.

We continue through Kananaskis and end back in Calgary for a fantastic dinner and party.

Thank you to all participants, sponsors and volunteers...last year and this year...let's make this bigger!
