October 20/12 10:16 am - Cycling Celebration Dedicates Profits to Race Clean Program
Posted by Editor on 10/20/12
Cycling Canada is taking another concrete step towards a doping-free sport, investing the profits from next Friday's Cycling Celebration event to the ‘Race Clean: Own Your Victory’ program aimed at educating and fighting against doping in cycling.
Cyclists and sports fans from across the Greater Toronto Area and Southern Ontario can help in the fight against doping, by attending the event. In addition to knowing profits will be re-invested in the Race Clean program, attendees of the event will have a chance to rub shoulders with some of Canada’s biggest cycling stars, such as Clara Hughes, Tara Whitten, Catharine Pendrel, Joëlle Numainville, Emily Batty and Robbi Weldon, to name just a few.
More than 20 athletes - Olympians, Paralympians and World Championships medallists - will be expected at the event in Toronto, as well as national team coaches from all five disciplines - Road, Track, Mountain Bike, BMX and Para-cycling.
The event will showcase a draw for a National Team LOOK 586 Ultegra bike, a silent auction with Cycling Canada and Race Clean merchandise, framed photographs and framed Olympic authentic jersey, a painting from renowned sport artist David Arrigo signed by 2012 Cyling Olympians and Paralympians, and so much more.
In addition to these great prizes up for grabs throughout the evening, each participant will receive the official Cycling Canada Olympic-edition pin and a Pedal to the Medal poster and be treated to video highlights from the past four years.
Kids under 12 years old will be entre free of charge before 7 pm.
Tickets, $ 50 each, can be purchased Here.
