Max's Big Ride - June 3 - 9, 2019

The 5th edition of Max's Big Ride will kick off on Monday, June 3 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Eight year old Max, his three year old sister Isla and his father Andrew will ride 600 km on their cargo bike ride to Ottawa - finishing on Sunday, June 9 on Parliament Hill.

All proceeds from their ride will go to help find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy - a fatal disease that Max suffers from. Over the past three years Max and his family have raised over $170,000.

All 2019 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.
