Set Em Up
BMX Bikes & Bus Program for Inner City Toronto kids
The Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) is pleased to announce the creation of Set Em Up - a BMX (bicycle moto-cross) race activity aimed at low income, at-risk and less fortunate youth from the Toronto area.
By creating a strong partnership with Norco Performance Bikes, Mike Heaton of Toronto BMX and Track 2000 BMX Milton, the OCA will be providing transportation and BMX race equipment for over 100 kids. Buses will leave Toronto on August 17th, 24th and 31st for Track 2000 BMX in Milton for a day of fun in the sun. The total cost to per person is only $2.00.
After over 8 years of dedicated work, Mike Heaton of Toronto BMX recently gained approval for the construction of a BMX racetrack. This approval came with great support from Councillor Sylvia Watson of Ward 14 Parkdale-High Park. The proposed site is Marilyn Bell Park with construction aiming to begin in the fall of 2005 and ready to race in 2006. The Norco BMX Bikes and Mace helmets used in the Set Em Up program will then be donated to the new Toronto BMX facility by the OCA.
This program is made possible with funding from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporations City of Toronto District Bingo program. Norco Performance Bikes is dedicated to supporting grassroots BMX racing in Ontario and they are pleased to announce their commitment to support this program. Kris Somers of "Turn the Amp to Eleven" Events will be on hand to add colour commentary, call the races, and make sure music is jamming all day. Track 2000 BMX will be providing volunteer riders and officials. Thanks for donated products and prizes go to Answer/Jagger Racing; C4 Distribution; Raleigh Canada Limited; Split/Session; Dyna-tech Action Inc.; Orange Sport Supply and more.
The OCA is looking forward to an ongoing relationship with all of the Set Em Up partners and thanks them for their support.
