“We’re excited to share our passion for cycling and its benefits with young people who might not ordinarily have the opportunity,” said Brad Hains, Race Director and a Big Brother. “Each year, we play a greater role in our community. We’re very proud of that.”
Sixteen young people will be equipped with new bicycles, helmets and locks during a special presentation ceremony at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office, at 71 West Drive in Brampton on Monday, June 2 at 7pm. The ceremony will be attended by race organizers and members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel.
The donation was made possible through a joint partnership between Le Tour de Terra Cotta and the Brampton Cycling Club. The bicycles were purchased at a discount from Caledon Hills Cycling.
Proceeds from this year’s race, to be held on Monday, August 4 th , 2014 through the scenic hills of Caledon will also benefit:
“As the race grows in popularity, so does our level of community support,” added Hains. “This year we’re giving back to our community in as many ways as possible.”
