BY THE NUMBERS 144 12th annual villa charities giro Participants in 2018 Villa Charities Giro cycling fundraiser 3 New cycling routes The 12th Annual Villa Charities Giro cycling fundraiser continued the success of previous years, generating $124,550 in revenues and providing a day of great cycling, food and fun for the 144 registered riders. The 2018 event tested the endurance of riders on the 100km Gran Fondo, the 60km Media Fondo and the family- friendly 25km Corto Fondo routes. Starting and finishing at a new home base, the Veneto Centre in Vaughan, the ride’s participants enjoyed Italian- themed rest stops with gourmet food and beverages. All net funds raised at the event, which was held in late May 2018, were directed to support the upcoming redevelopment of Villa Colombo Homes for the Aged Inc. (Villa Colombo Toronto). THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS Villa Charities thanks all of our valued sponsors, donors, volunteers and partners who provided their support and contributed to the success of Giro, with a special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Lady York Foods. Residents of Villa Colombo Vaughan, our long-term care home, turned out to cheer on the riders, who received a hot breakfast served by staff and volunteers. 8 VILLA CHARITIES FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT 9
