Thank You Riders!

2010 Pedal 100 Raises $27,000 for Heart and Stroke

The Heart and Stroke Foundation in St. Catharines and Pedal Magazine would like to thank everyone involved for their help with the Pedal 100 event on Sunday, August 15. More than $27,000 in revenue was raised with 150 enthusiastic riders participating in this annual charity event.

The focus in 2010 was to encourage each participant to raise funds to ensure more money is provided for research – last year only 60% of participants raised money. We succeeded as the average amount raised per participant increased to $180 compared to last year’s average of $141 and all participants raised a minimum of $100 – congratulations riders.

Thanks to all volunteers – Audrey, Jen, Sue and many others – including the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Sara Belanger and long-term operations, route and rest-stop volunteer John Helm, for putting together another solid and successful event.

We’d also like to thank and recognize our sponsors including 105.7 FM EZ Rock, NEWSTalk 610 CKTB, and 97.7HTZ-FM .

Please feel free to share any suggestions or feedback with us on how we can improve the Pedal 100 for Heart and Stroke. We hope to see you at the next event on Sunday, August 14th, 2011!
