Max's Big Ride - June 11 - 17, 2018

The 4th edition of Max's Big Ride will kick off on Monday, June 11 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Seven year old Max, his two year old sister Isla and his father Andrew will ride 600 km on their cargo bike ride to Ottawa - finishing on Father's Day on Parliament Hill.

All proceeds from their ride will go to help find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Over the past three years Max and his family have raised over $140,000.

All 2018 donations will go to support the exciting research taking place in the Gunning Group Lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

When we heard the story of Max's Big Ride, we couldn't help but get involved.

Taken from the Ottawa Citizen - June 12, 2017 Andrew Sedmihradsky completed a 600-kilometre bike ride on Monday to raise money for research that might one day allow his six-year-old son, Max, to ride alongside him.
