Update 6/6/16: Many thanks to everyone who came out to support our Inside Ride event at Playdium on Saturday - together, we have raised nearly $5,000 (and counting!) for OPACC to continue supporting YOU, our families!
So many amazing people to thank...let's start with special thanks to our Ambassador Families and to all of our wonderful teams and volunteers - there would be no event without you!
Congratulations to the top teams who won medals for Best Team Spirit (Connor's Champions), Best Team Costume (Kitchener Waterloo Parent Support Group), Top Team Mileage (Connor's Crazies), and the Top Fundraising Team (Susan's Team OPACC)!
Sincere gratitude to the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation and their sponsors; Playdium for hosting the event; Rogers TV for covering the event; and St. John Ambulance for providing the medics.
Thanks to our special guests who took the time to show their support for our cause: MP for Mississauga Centre Mr. Omar Alghabra and Mississauga Ward 4 Councillor Mr. John Kovac (who also rode on a team!).

Please note that even though the event is over, the fundraising website (toronto.theinsideride.com) remains open , and you can still support us by making a donation to get us closer to our goal! Remember, all of the donations go directly to OPACC to help provide resources and supports for YOU, our families! Thank you!
We'd also like to hear from those who couldn't participate in this year's event! It would greatly help us for future planning to know why you couldn't participate and your suggestions for improvement. Please take a moment to provide your valuable feedback on this quick survey (be honest - all responses are completely anonymous!): https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HGTFMS9
In 2015, you helped OPACC raise over $18,000 to help children with cancer in our local communities! This year, we challenge you once again to help us raise even more: Be an OPACC champion supporting all our heroes and join with us at the Toronto Inside Ride 2016!
