Fundrais­ing and frozen treats

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Cy­cling and ice cream for a good cause — that’s the idea be­hind the Ice Cream Ride. It’s a 25-kilo­me­tre jour­ney from Bayfront Park to Burling­ton’s Spencer Smith Park and back again to raise money to help find a cure for Duchenne mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy (DMD).

The ride is part of a larger fundrais­ing ef­fort called Max’s Big Ride, started by six-year-old Max Sed­mihrad­sky and his fam­ily to help fund re­search on DMD through the reg­is­tered char­ity, Jesse’s Jour­ney.

The Ice Cream Ride is the first stretch of a 600-kilo­me­tre fundrais­ing ride to Ot­tawa for Sed­mihrad­sky and his dad.

Along the way, rid­ers will be re­warded with frozen dessert from Rudy’s and lunch from Cake and Loaf, plus an­other treat from Rudy’s at the fin­ish line.
