The Event: A biking event to raise money for United Way of Durham Region taking place at Lakeview Park in Oshawa.The event was in partnership with Oshawa Cycling Club.This money goes toward people in the Durham Region Community who are less fortunate.
The United Way will be distributing promotional lip balms which will help promote awareness about the event and their cause.The Rewards: Besides the satisfaction of helping those less fortunate in the Durham Region community....there are some great prizes being given away:
|Win a Pinarello (CAN$1,000.00 + ) |
Individuals who succeed in raising one thousand dollars in pledges will have their names entered in a draw to win a Pinarello Traveso. With a more relaxed geometry than their racing bikes, the Traveso provides for a slightly more relaxed and upright position on the bike while providing a ride which has plenty of power and jump for hills or inclines.
|Giant Bike draw level - CAN$100 (CAN$100.00 + ) |
Participants who raise one hundred dollars or more will have their names entered in a draw for a fabulous Giant Seek 1 bicycle. This is a great bike which will provide for a broad range of cycling enjoyment.
