This past weekend, Auto123.com took part in Make-A-Wish Quebec’s 48-hour bike ride to help fulfill the dreams of children with life-threatening conditions. For the 2015 edition, two teams of riders hit Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal and pedalled non-stop from Friday, Sept. 25th at noon to Sunday, Sept. 27th at noon.
Together with 1,400 other cyclists, they took turns on the track and braved the hot afternoons and brisk mornings of early fall. Everyone had the same goal in mind: to help make a kid’s dream come true and give their family a much-needed break.
The Auto123.com teams ended up raising $9,355.32, easily surpassing their target of $7,800. Overall, more than 200 teams participated and helped Make-A-Wish Quebec raise over $1,615,000.
Auto123.com is proud to contribute to this charity for five years and counting, and the focus is already turned on next year’s event. Congratulations to the 2015 riders: Alexandre Desparois, Jean Dumas, Douce Fournier, Andréanne Germain, Peter Kovalcik, Josée Paquet, Guillaume Rivard, Simon Cadieux, Gabrielle Dumas, Mathieu Germain, Elisa Krummen, Jeanne Pouliot, and Joannie Roy. Awesome work, guys, and thank you to all the people who donated money to support this great cause!
