And that’s a wrap…
What a night it was, the 5th Cycle for Carley’s Angels + Holistic Market came to a close with a record-breaking bang! This year the combined event raised $16,500+, topping any of the previous years by a landslide!
Thank you to every participant, spectator, and volunteer who had a hand in making this our best year yet! Competition was fiercer, spectators were louder and our “Carley’s Crew” was on point to ensure this would be the year to remember!
We’d also like to give a big thank you to our Presenting Sponsor “DanTech” without the support of Joel and his team our event would not be the same! Thank you for sticking with us the last 3 years, and hopefully many more to come!
Now onto the recap…
The Holistic Market kicked off the event at 5pm with a handselected group of holistic based businesses from the GTA. Shoppers got to enjoy hand-crafted candles, jewellery made by and in support of women in Pakistan, beautiful potted plants, cold-pressed olive oil, yoga wear, nutritional education and so much more!
Then our DJ, ArmoKidd started the music, our Emcee counted down the riders and by 5:30pm our racers were off!
It was like something we’ve never seen before… maybe it was the combination of the amazing music, the biggest crowd yet and some ready trained cyclists? But, as the evening progressed so did the level of competition. We think it might have something to do with our amazing “Carley’s Crew” but that’s just our biased opinion 😉
And Drumroll Please….
