Im enrolling strong riders for the 24HR Mosport Velo

This event is for Special Olympics Ontario.  This extremely credible charitable organization has a brand new and very unique event being introduced in Canada:  24 Hour Mosport Velo.  This event is unique to Canada and hope that you will consider participating. I will be entering a team of 10 people.  You can read further to have a better understanding of what is being asked.


As part of this inaugural event I’m waiving the registration fees to the team.  Bear in mind that this is for a great cause so I need to see funds being raised  - Athletes Supporting Athletes!

I have attached two links that showcase/outline similar events in Europe … remember this is the first of its kind here in Canada - we will be making history!  We will also be supporting over 26,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities who love sports and train hard to be the best they can be - just like you and I.
