The 401 Bike Challenge made its return last week and Air Canada Vacations was out in full force for the event.
Lasting three days and spanning over 580 km from Toronto to Montreal, this charity bike ride is co-sponsored by Air Canada Vacations and McDonald’s and aims to raise funds to help improve the care and treatment of children battling cancer, as well as support their families and the dedicated people who care for them.
ACV has proudly been the title sponsor of the 401 Bike Challenge since 2019. This year, seven Air Canada Vacations employees — Nino Montagnese, Lucy Sabella, Andreas Anastassopoulos, Kevin Boada, Gustavo Maass, Tony Rolli and Marie-Christine Boyer — signed up to meet the challenge and raise money for the oncology/hematology units of the Montreal Children’s Hospital, the Toronto SickKids Hospital and the Ottawa Children’s Hospital.
Through Air Canada Vacations’ sponsorship and individual rider fundraising, $54, 776 was donated to the cause bringing the grand total raised by all participants for this year’s edition to $273,383 with donations continuing to pour in.
