Equipe 78' - 3rd Annual Toronto to Montreal Ride
This is the Third Year that Equipe 78' is running the Toronto To Montreal Charity Ride. Each year we select a Local Charity in our community to be the beneficiary of our efforts. This year we have selected The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery . It is Canada’s leading non-collecting, public art gallery dedicated exclusively to contemporary visual art from Canada and the world. It is a vital forum for the advanced artistic culture of our time that offers an exceptional facility and professional support to a diverse group of living artists while engaging equally diverse audiences in their work. The Power Plant fulfills its mandate by generating: exhibitions that represent the range of advanced practice in visual arts; publications that provide in-depth explorations of contemporary art; lectures and symposia that encourage debate and further understanding; interpretative tools that invite visitors to question, explore and reflect upon their experiences; programming that incorporates other areas of culture at their intersection with visual art. We have also selected Greenest City Environmental as the recipients of Ride Registration Proceeds. Greenest City is dedicated to creating innovative projects that promote health, support community action, and enhance social and environmental justice in Toronto. Their programs create opportunities for social and environmental change by equipping and inspiring residents of all ages and backgrounds to achieve local solutions to improve the state of the environment. Our four main areas of focus include: urban agriculture/food security, environmental education, community engagement and growing a green economy.
