Scope and Content
Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published October 21, 1983 with caption:" Trainees and staff members at START to Finish, the START Centre's downtown retail outlet, have come up with a unique team project to raise funds for the United Way campaign. They are pedalling a stationary bicycle 135 miles (217 kilometres) - the distance from St. Thomas to Montreal - in a combined effort and have pledges from local businesses, friends, volunteers, and relatives. Above Ted Saunders takes his turn on the bike, spurred on by his colleague, Nelson Hawley. The project idea originated with a START Centre resident and the bicycle was provided by Harold Staples, physiotherapist. In the first few days the riders have pedalled 116 miles, (186.6 kilometres) more than half the distance, and have raised more than $100 in pledge money."
