Our GM Rides for Charity

Good afternoon my friends,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone that sponsored me to ride in the Inaugural Bike Rally from Toronto to Lake Camp Scugog.

Between the Rotary Club of Toronto, friends and family, we raised almost $17,000, with a few more donations expected to trickle in over the next few days.

This is enough money to send 17 at risk kids to camp, where they will get a break from the daily challenges of their neighborhoods and spend 10 days in a safe environment, where they can retreat, recover and learn new skills that they can take back to their homes and communities.

The ride was a very challenging 75Km, mostly uphill and into a headwind, but it was an amazing feeling as we were cheered on by Camp Staff at the finish line. (see photo below)

Surprisingly, I was still able to get out of bed the next day and go golfing.

Once again, we sincerely appreciate everyone’s support for this new initiative and we are already working on next year’s ride.

I’ve already begun training for the next Bike Rally.

Many thanks,

Bill Morari
COO & General Manager
The National Club
