Life Longer

According to a study done by Richard Swenson, M.D., those who do regular volunteer work show a dramatically increase in their life-expectancy.

In his book 'Margin' the study showed that men not involved in some altruistic activity had two-and-one-half times the morbidity rate than those who volunteered at least once a week.

GNNC is blessed by a number of new volunteers who have stepped forward to assist us with various projects and programs.

Nic Williams is a GIS student at VIU and he is working on the new Bicycle Map for Nanaimo with the city.

Taylor Alexander just got of the plane from back east and he is ready to dig in and do some advocating for GNCC.

The Greater Nanaimo Cycling Coalition will leverage every cent of your membership dollars to build a stronger bicycling community and engage in bike advocacy efforts focused on infrastructure, safety, and education in Nanaimo. The stronger our biking community, the more apparent our message and our needs as cyclists become, and the more likely they are to be met by our city..

If you're in the giving mood, member or not, GNCC will be accepting one-time donations that go directly to the cause! Feel free to send us a cheque if you want to donate now.
