DUKE Heights BIA is working with Anthony Perruzza, Toronto City Councillor for Ward 7 and few other local community organizations towards organizing a community bike race event on October 05, 2019. The objective of this event is to provide bikes to kids who are in need from the neighbouring community by developing young riders’ essential skills in a safe, fun, and playful environment and leading them up to a non-competitive bike race.

The City of Toronto Transportation and Traffic Management departments and Toronto Police are already on board, who will be providing necessary support in making this event successful.
For sponsors, this is an opportunity to contribute to an initiative driven by local needs and to give back to the community. This is also a wonderful volunteering opportunity – a great occasion for networking with some of the local businesses and community members.

To learn more and participate, email us at bikerace@dukeheights.ca.
