It was a beautiful sunny early summer day yesterday, perfect for the inaccurately-labelled Inside Ride. You see, this annual event, presented by the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation, actually takes place in the Tucows parking lot and spills out onto Mowat Avenue itself.
This year, we had ten teams competing against each other both in fundraising and in total mileage (kilometreage?) ridden. Each member of each team of six rode stationary bikes for ten minutes at a time, trying to accumulate the most distance possible.
I’m happy to report that the Marketing team lifted the Team Fundraising trophy, raising more than $3,600, and the event itself raised more than $25,000 for kids living with cancer. Thanks to everyone who supported us in reaching and then surpassing our fundraising goal!
P.S. Although I myself didn’t ride, I did manage to acquire my first sunburn of the summer.
Special thanks to videographer Frank Lemire and photographer Aj Mirani, both longtime OpenSRS employees.
