Clinton Raceway Celebrates Fleming Fundraisers

Fans at the Clinton Raceway Sunday got a chance to thank Will and Claire Fleming. The brother and sister team biked across Canada this spring to raise money for the Canadian Tire Jump Start program to help kids get involved in sports.

Their goal was to raise 76-hundred dollars. At this point they’re over 40-thousand dollars.

21-year old Will and 17 year old Claire were both relative cycling novices when they started training for the 45-day ride in April, and Claire admitted it was a grind some days.

But they both got a chance to enjoy parts of the country they would otherwise never see. Claire pointed out they had to deal with some snow in May that they weren’t expecting, but both called it an experience of a lifetime and one they’re never forget.
