John Barlow PhotoThis ride is a first of its kind in southern Alberta and was initiated by the Member of Parliament for Macleod, John Barlow.

“This is a fantastic cause directly helping great people and a great organization right here in our community. Camp Horizon is a special place – it is where I met an inspiring young girl named Elisa and where my nephew Dylan, who suffers from Crohn’s Disease, will be enjoying a week this summer.

“Plus, I can’t think of a better way to bring our communities together than enjoying the sights of our beautiful Eastern slopes.” – John Barlow, MP, Macleod
