In 2017, we joined the Canada Africa Partnership Ride for the first time, riding beyond relief for South Sudan and beyond. Thanks to Nadine McNulty for hosting us on CIUT 89.5FM to discuss the best ways of addressing extreme hunger and water scarcity. We look forward to mobilizing the Toronto community for years to come to ride alongside great initiatives supporting grassroots African development projects.
