PWA's Friends for Life Bike Rally

Every July for the past 17 years more than 300 Riders and Crew have been departing from Toronto on a 6-day, 600 km journey to Montréal for PWA's Friends For Life Bike Rally. This annual fundraising event has raised more than $14 million dollars and is the sustaining fundraiser for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation (PWA). The funds raised through the Bike Rally enable PWA to provide critical services and support to individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto.

Bike Rally Participants of all ages and levels of experience share a common passion in supporting their friends, family and neighbours living with HIV/AIDS. Join PWA's Friends For Life Bike Rally for the experience of a lifetime and help make a positive difference.

  1. The inaugural 1-Day, 108 km Ride from Toronto to Port Hope
