A special thanks to our Walk for Thomas 2014 Sponsors!
The date has been set for the 4th Annual Walk for Thomas – please keep the morning of Sunday October 5th, 2014 open! Watch the Peloton 65 site, http://peloton65.com/ and our Facebook page for more event details and updates. The walk will be held at Queen Elizabeth School in West Hillhurst, Calgary (402 – 18 St NW). We were overwhelmed by the generous outpouring of participants last year, and had an unexpected 350+ participants.
The morning of October 5th will go as follows:
· 9:30am Wake-Up Refreshments
· 10:00am Welcome and Warm-up
· 10:15am Depart for 3km Walk

We will have Walk for Thomas merchandise for sale and will also be accepting donations at the event. If you cannot make the event and still wish to donate, please feel free to visit the donation page at Peloton65.com. All funds raised at the event support The Thomas Mueller Phage Display project, an innovative project being co-led by Dr. Paul Beaudry at the University of Calgary and Dr. David Kaplan at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
This amazing event would not be possible without some equally amazing volunteers. If you are interested in helping out this year, we would love to have your support. There are a wide variety of ways to get involved:
- Route Marshalls– Route Marshalls will be placed along the route to keep people moving and ensure that our walkers are safe.
- Food Crew – From set up to prep to cooking burgers, there will be lots to do!
- Registration Table – Greet walkers as they arrive, register participants, hand out event brochures/route map and provide a run down to the day’s event.
- Merchandise and Donations Table – Manage merchandise and cash sales. Collect and manage donations.
- Event Set Up Crew – Arrive early before the event to help with the set-up of chairs/tables, the organizing of the various stations, accept deliveries and work with on-site vendors.
- Clean Up Crew – Hang out after the walk to help us pack it all up!
- First Aid Station – If you are qualified and would like to help out in this area, please let me know.
If you have any questions about the event or any of the listed positions, please contact Julie Walyuchow. Feel free to forward this information along to anyone else you think might be interested.
We hope for another special Walk; where people will gather to remember Thomas and to unite in the fight against neuroblastoma.

We have had some great feedback from our event on Saturday! But an event like this would not have been possible without the sponsors who helped make it happen and we want to send out heartfelt thank you’s to Bow Cycle North, Cyclepath Calgary and Pedalheads Calgary.
Thank you again to those who came down, the volunteers who put the event together and those who wish they could make it but sent good vibes anyway!

Tune-up services are free but a donation to Peloton 65 would be greatly appreciated by the team. Bring your bike, your family and a full picnic basket and join us on Saturday, June 7!
Where: Riley Park
When: Saturday, June 7, 11 – 1 p.m.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Patricia (Pat) Mueller on Monday, November 4th at the age of 64. After a brave and fierce battle with cancer, Pat passed peacefully with her husband and children at her side.
Pat leaves to cherish her memory her loving husband, Peter, her three children, Philip (Dianne Wilkins) of Calgary, Lisa (Corey Sadlemyer) of Medicine Hat, and Sara (Brett Anhorn) of Calgary; she also leaves her treasured grandchildren, Anna, Thomas (deceased), Kenna, Turner, Nora and Eli. Her family was her life, and she will be so profoundly missed by all of them. Pat was intensely proud and protective of her children, their spouses and her grandchildren, and was forever devoted to their health, happiness, and success.
Her roots in Philadelphia remained strong, and her sister, Ginny (Rick Kremer), along with her nieces Kim and Chris, as well as numerous other special family members and friends there will feel her loss. In addition, Pat leaves numerous paternal in-laws, nieces and nephews to cherish her memory. Pat was predeceased by her parents, Howard and Lydia Maier, and her dear grandson, Thomas Mueller.
Some of you might not have had the pleasure of knowing Pat, but you most certainly tasted her cookies every year at The Walk for Thomas. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to peloton65.com, a cause that was near to Pat’s heart.
There will be a Celebration of Pat’s life on Saturday, November 9th from 3-5pm at Medalta Pottery (713 Medalta Ave SE, Medicine Hat). Guests are asked to dress comfortably, as though you were going for a visit at Pat’s house.
Good luck to those of you participating in the Lemon Run this Sunday in Philadelphia!

This past Sunday we held our 3rd Annual Walk for Thomas in Calgary.
We were once again overwhelmed by the attendance, and welcomed over 350 on a brisk Sunday Calgary morning. We raised over $27000, all of which will be going again to the Thomas Mueller Phage Display Project.
We were thrilled to welcome Diana Birrell, Executive Director of The James Fund, to our event this year.
This event simply wouldn’t be possible without the outpouring of support from our volunteers and our participants as well as the following sponsors:
From all of us, Thank you so very, very much.
