IMG_6253_smThanks to everyone who joined us for our second annual Riders Against Hunger in support of Eden Community Food Bank. 60 bikes filled the back parking lot of the food bank on a beautiful Saturday morning. 76 participants registered for the ride.

Together, we raised a total of $16,600 through sponsorships, rider registrations and the day-of-event activities. Our goal is to help the food bank purchase food and support hungry families in western Mississauga! Thanks to our sponsors who covered the cost of the event, 100% of what was raised by riders and the other participants went directly to the food bank.
