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

The 4th edition of Max's Big Ride began in Hamilton on Monday, June 11 and 600 km and 7 days later, finished on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Seven year old Max was joined for much of the ride by his two year old sister Isla.

The 2018 edition raised close to $30,000, bringing the total raised for a cure up to $170,000 - and all 2018 donations went 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.
