TORONTO, Sep. 10, 2015 /CNW/ - Morning Glory Cycling Club ("MGCC") is pleased to announce that in partnership with Gears Bike Shop ("Gears"), it is holding their 4th annual bike drive on Sunday October 4th, 2015, from 1 pm until 4 pm, in order to provide over 150 bicycles to children and young adults in Parkdale.
MGCC is also pleased that multiple Olympic medal winner Curt Harnett is supporting the efforts and will be at the event with his medals in hand along with several high profile athletes. The event will be held in the parking lot of 100 High Park Avenue.
The bikes have been generously donated by MGCC members, friends and the community at large in order to provide bikes to children and young adults without the financial means to obtain bicycles on their own. Each bike received has been tuned up by Gears to be ready for donation. We are also grateful that members of the Toronto Police Service will be onsite to help run the event for bike safety.
