The Hamilton Inside Ride celebrates children and families living with and beyond cancer
(HAMILTON, ON) - The 6th annual Hamilton Inside Ride will take place on Thursday, October 27 at CF Lime Ridge Mall in support of McMaster Children's Hospital Foundation and Help a Child Smile. The high-energy cycling event celebrates life and survivorship in pediatric cancer.
A cancer diagnosis is difficult at any age, but especially in children, it affects the whole family. This event celebrates the strength and resiliency of the children. "It's a proud moment for Car Nation Canada to be able to sponsor a meaningful event that will help children and their families in real tangible ways," says Michelle Paletta, Vice-President, Car Nation Canada.
The Hamilton Inside Ride, produced by the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation raises funds specifically for children treated at McMaster Children's Hospital. The event is open to friends, families, businesses and community groups who want to support this great cause.
"We are thrilled to have Car Nation as the lead sponsor of the Hamilton Inside Ride. As a local business with employees and customers throughout our region, they immediately stepped up to support this event. They have a deep commitment to the community and the children cared for at the hospital. As the only place children can receive treatment for cancer in our region, they understand how important an event like the Hamilton Inside Ride is to the children we have the privilege to care for." says Jennifer Laughton, VP McMaster Children's Hospital Foundation.
Teams will consist of six riders and each cyclist will pedal for five minutes to fun, fast-paced music. Participants in costume record their mileage for awards and cheer each other on. Go to https://Hamilton.theinsideride.com for more information and to register.
