Riders Against Hunger – Saturday, August 16th, 2014

4th Annual Riders Against Hunger in Mississauga
RAH 2014 imageThanks to everyone who joined us for our fourth annual Riders Against Hunger in support of Eden Community Food Bank. Despite cooler temperatures and threatening skies, about 75 bikes showed up to ride for food! In total, 93 participants braved the weather and their dedication was rewarded with a great ride and the rain held off. We started out from the South Common Mall this year which made it easier to stage the bikes as they came in and then send them out in groups.

Together, we raised a total of $26,000 through sponsorships, rider registrations, pre-events 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.
