PEDALS FOR POSSIBILITIES
SAULT STE. MARIE FIRE SERVICES
We are excited to share our partnership with Sault Ste. Marie Fire Services. Together we have the shared goal to raise $91,100 and cycle 911km to help to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
“Sault Ste. Marie Fire Services joined Pedals for Possibilities because we see the United Way as a Team that utilizes many people to accomplish their goals. This is a mirror image of the Fire Service. It takes many individuals to commit to a goal and come together as a team to accomplish that goal. Pedal for Possibilities is a great cause and gives back to the community, helps those in need and engages the community. These are the same values that the members of the Sault Ste. Marie Fire Services encompass in their roles every day. Uniting these two great teams will result in a tremendous success.”

As a police officer, Sonny proudly wears badge number 283 and had an ambitious goal of cycling 283km while raising $283,000.
Each year, though the numbers and leaders may change, the purpose remains the same, to reduce local poverty.
