For the past two months, Kourtney Reich, has taken on the role of Communications and Digital Marketing Coordinator for NCCH. Her main responsibility was to create and launch our new website that you are on right now.
What started as research on which platform would best fit our needs, soon became an in-depth process of bringing our vision to life. From creating the website pages, editing their content and layouts, developing a theme, making interactive PDFs, editing videos, and writing blog posts, Kourtney has been a part of this website development from start to finish.
Now, after many meetings, work sessions and hours put into this project, we are so excited to officially launch and share with you all the hard work that has been put into making this revamped website a reality. Moving forward, Kourtney will continue to work on making our program applications user-friendly and develop strategies around our social media content.
We have met with many stakeholders, and have had excellent, and positive feedback, and great ideas and support for the future.
We are excited to publish our new website, and we hope you like it as much as we do!
Thank you to all the people who contributed with photos, videos and content, with special thanks to our Communications & Digital Marketing Coordinator, Kourtney Reich, and our hard working volunteers Katharine Short and James Chartland.
The website will be a 'live' resource with up to date news, blogs, calendar events, social media feeds, and of course how to join our great programs.
If you have any comments please let us know, if you are delighted with it, let everybody know!
Winter 2019/2020 before the pandemic, NCCH hosted members of HAMILTON UNITED Pro Cycling (with NCCH Alumni Kate Turbitt, Victoria Slater, Nicole Bradbury, Jack Sirman, Justin Correa, Thomas Pevalin) and X-Speed United UCI Continental team (with 3 time National Champion Ryan Roth) at our indoor studio in Ancaster's Morgan Firestone Arena.
It is unique to see up and coming young sportspeople be given the opportunity to train and socialize with their idols. This is mentorship at its best.
You can only imagine our amazement when we heard that a 5 year old boy from Stoney Creek pedalled 72 km to the CN Tower. In fact, we were so impressed that we reached out to his family asking if he would like to come ride with NCCH.
We met Ben, and his father Brian, on Saturday when they joined us for his first session. He fit in right away and kept a smile on his face the entire time. Despite being a few years younger than the other kids, his energy and effort was undeniable. He's a natural cyclist and if his previous achievements are any indication he will quickly learn all that cycling has to offer.
We look forward to seeing Ben grow as a cyclist and are confident that he will one day achieve his goal of cycling across Canada.
