Thanks for joining us for our third annual Riders Against Hunger motorcycle charity ride in support of Eden Community Food Bank. 80 bikes filled the back parking lot of the Unity Drive food bank on a beautiful Saturday morning. We were excited to surpass this year’s goal of 100 participants! Over 100 participants, both riders and passengers, registered for the ride.
Together, we raised almost $23,000 through sponsorships, rider registrations and the day-of-event activities. Our goal was 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 you and the other participants went directly to the food bank.
It was an amazing day to go for a ride on your motorcycle. The 150 km route took us through some great twisty turnies west to Waterdown, then up through the Campbellville area, east on the 15 Sideroad and then south into Mississauga and our end venue at Five Guys Burgers & Fries at the South Common Mall.
