The energy, comradery, and community spirit demonstrated by over 300 spin-cycling participants was not only inspiring, but it Rocketed us to a Guinness World Record for the most money raised in a static cycling event!

Remarks from Mayor John Tory and a special message from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau helped motivate our participating past patients, supporters, scientists, clinicians, staff, family and friends in the 5-hour relay event. Emcee and JOGA founder Jana Webb introduced special guests such as event co-founder, stroke survivor and top fundraiser, Howard Rocket, who shared his story, encouragement and gratitude.

The funds raised will have an enormous impact on advancing patient care and research at Toronto Rehab and we thank all our donors, participants and sponsors for helping make incredible happen!
