Supercar club does the unbelievable for cancer research
The North Face Rally is a supercar club based out of Toronto. They are known for their fast cars and big hearts. They are involved in many charities and community projects and they regularly use their amazing machines to make dreams come true for very deserving people. The club has even organized massive toy drives for Sick Kids Hospital and The Metro Toronto Police Christmas hamper.
They are a huge hit when they roll into the Strada Car Show in Vaughan, Ontario. Their reputation is as big as their lineup of Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Mercedes, Audis, Lexus', GTRs and other gorgeous exotics. Their entry steals the show.
They are generous with their time and often allow car enthusiasts to sit in the cars and take pictures and videos.
This gave one of the members of the club an idea. Ghostrider, a very active member in the North Face Rally, approached the organizer of the Strada Car Show with a brilliant idea. Together, they came up with a plan to offer members of the crowd rides in their dream cars for a donation to charity. They decided to donate all of the proceeds to Cops for Cancer/Pedal for Hope, the largest pediatric cancer research fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.
In 14 years, Pedal for Hope has raised over 5 million dollars, with a big part of that funding a special and groundbreaking research grant at Sick Kids Hospital.
The offer was announced at the show and a line quickly formed to hop in the cars. Car club members lined up and took donors on a full throttle thrill ride around a closed track in the parking lot. The event last for three hours. People had a ride like nothing they had ever experienced, pictures and videos to help tell the story, and the feeling that comes with helping a good cause.
This first of its kind event raised over $1,000 to combat childhood cancer.
Kudos to this club full of everyday heroes. They really are "The Fast and the Generous."
