On Sunday, 26 May, as part of the Metropolitan Bike Challenge held in the Lanaudière region, more than 150 cyclists pedalled for good causes, raising more than $116,000.

Cycling for inclusion

In its 11th year, Pedal for Inclusion raised over $61,000, a record amount for cyclists and donors. 80 cyclists in 11 teams braved routes ranging from 60 to 163 km across the Lanaudière region, supported by more than 250 generous donors.

The funds raised will enable Mission inclusion to provide concrete support to its dozens of partner organizations, such as Mères avec pouvoir. This organization accompanies mothers and their children from birth to age five by providing psychosocial support, housing and a place in the Carrefour Early Childhood Centre (CPE).

The Ubisoft Montréal community commits to the environment

95 Ubisoft Montréal employees got on their bikes to support Mission inclusion’s new Environmental Fund. Thanks to their commitment and the solidarity of those around them, $55,000 was raised.

Ubisoft’s support for launching the Environment and Climate Justice Fund enables us to support the first concrete and innovative initiative that places people in vulnerable situations at the heart of the ecological transition and recognizes them as essential players in social transformation.

The funds raised will support the Resilient Gardens project, run by the citizens’ group Comm-Un on the Plateau Mont-Royal. The project will develop and dedicate part of this space to urban agriculture: growing fruit, vegetables, plants and flowers. Workshops will be run by homeless people and members of Aboriginal nations who will share their knowledge.

Let’s keep pedalling towards 100% inclusion!

The commitment of our volunteers, our corporate partners who are taking part in Pedal for Inclusion, and Ubisoft for the Environment Fund encourages us to continue working towards a world that is 100% inclusive.
