Riders either rode the 90 km medio fondo or the 150 km gran fondo on the roads of the Durham Region, east of Toronto. The funds from the ride went to support the organization that uses baseball-based programs to help kids facing opportunity gaps. For example, the Rookie League and Field Of Dreams programs are geared to helping kids below the poverty line. Girls at Bat is aimed at getting young girls physically active and keeping them active throughout their lives.
