Ken MacAlpine is one of the organizers of the Bluewater International Granfondo, which takes place in Sarnia-Lambton on Sunday, August 6, 2017.

Ken MacAlpine is one busy guy with the organization of the Bluewater International Granfondo, which will be held Sunday, August 6.

Now in its second year, the Granfondo is looking to be even more popular than last year’s inaugural event.

But the “headline” on this episode of Spotlight is that the registration fee goes up on June 1, 2017, just a few days away (we spoke with Ken on Wednesday, May 24).

Full details on the event can be found at

There’s lots going on with the event, and Ken talked about how he and Dr. Glen Maddison, who runs the Palliative Care Clinic at St. Joseph Hospice are making a difference. Last year, for example, the Bluewater International Granfondo resulted in a $30,000 donation, split between St. Joseph Hospice and Palliative Care at Bluewater Health.

Those proceeds put in motion an initiative that is helping to build expertise among the nursing community in Sarnia-Lambton, which Ken talked about in this interview
