Always Yonge – A ride for Right To Play

Recently I was contacted by Lynn Moffatt from the hip-hop performance group Side Pony Nation to let me know about an amazing adventure they are undertaking that, like the Yonge Street Pub Crawl, is also raising money for Right To Play.

From September 18 – 29, 2013 Lynn and her partner-in-crime Tanya Casole-Gouveia will join Ryan Malfara on a bike trek of 1,896 KM along the entire length of Yonge Street (aka Highway 11).

You can donate to the cause at http://alwaysyonge.com. If you would like to offer your support in-person there are two opportunities to do so.

On Thursday Sept 12 there will be a “Send-Off Party” at Alley Catz.

For the more actively inclined, the final 90 KM leg of the journey from Barrie to the Toronto Waterfront will be an open group ride. There will be a bus to take participants up to Barrie. More details are available on their facebook page.

The 8th installment of Toronto’s Yonge Street Pub Crawl for Right To Play was a great success and a ton of fun.

A big thank you to everyone who came out and joined our march up Yonge Street and an ever bigger thank you to everyone who donated.

In total we raised just under $500.00 for Right To Play. That brings our fundraising total for the past three years to $1,300.00.
