Pedals for Possibilities is United Way Sault Ste. Marie & Algoma District's cycling event

built to share our message,  raise funds and reach out to schools in our community.


5 Fire Service members are cycling 911 kilometers with a shared goal to raise $91,100 to help reduce poverty locally and in the Algoma District





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.”

We Are Possibility, Our History

Pedals for Possibilities 1st annual event took place on May 16th and 17th, 2018 led by our 2017 Campaign Chair and local police officer Sonny Spina with the goal to improve the lives of our residents. 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.
