A team of 12 cyclists hoping to raise $100,000 for the 2012 Ontario Public Service United Way campaign were given a Sault Ste. Marie send off Thursday morning.
The T2T bike ride arrived yesterday in the Sault - the half way mark on their 10 day trek from Thunder Bay to Toronto.
A group of staff from provincial ministries are volunteering their time and energy to cycle the 1,400 kilometre route.
The ride will take 10 days, from September 1 to 10, 2012.
The participants are challenging themselves for a great cause – to raise awareness and $100,000 for the United Way. Funds raised through the ride will help the United Way’s network of member agencies and programs ensure that hundreds of thousands of Ontarians have access to vital social services when and where they need it most – in their community.
Thursday morning under the Bondar Pavilion tent, the group was welcomed by Mayor Debbie Amaroso , 2012 Campaign Chair Jodi Nastor, Bill Thornton, Assistant Deputy Minister Transformation Secretariat
