Join us on May 4th 2024 for the Pedal Car Grand Prix at Calvary Ayr Church! The ultimate test of physical and mental fitness! This Grand Prix will put the rubber to the road for you and a team of your choice. Through 50 grueling laps around our world-class track, you’ll not only raise money for a fantastic cause, but you’ll learn depths of character that you didn’t know existed.

Nine teams will start this journey, but only one will be crowned champion of the Camp Shalom Pedal Car Cup.

Join a team now for only $5.00 per rider, then help us fundraise to reach our goal of $4000. All funds will go towards Camp Shalom’s “Stand in the Gap” program.

When: Saturday, May 4th 1-3pm

Where: Calvary Ayr Church located at 173 Northumberland St., Ayr, ON

Stand in the Gap

All proceeds will benefit our Stand in the Gap camper sponsorship program!

Since 2010, Stand in the Gap has sponsored and enabled over 1,100 campers to attend “Camp Shalom”, the summer ministry of Countryside Camp and Conference Centre in Cambridge, ON.

Register in 3 easy steps!

Step 1: Register. Gather your team, decide on a name, and then head on over to the registration page here. You’ll be asked to pay for each member of your team at registration, so make sure you know who’s all coming. If you aren’t totally sure who will be coming yet, don’t worry, go ahead and register now with as much information as you have and we can figure the rest out on the day of the event.

Step 2: Fundraise. Once registered, you’ll find sponsors for your team or you individually. This can be done by sharing your team’s page to social media, talking to friends and family, or talking to businesses. Our goal is to raise $4000 at this event, which works out to about $500 per team. The fundraising page can be found here. Pro tip: the bigger the team the easier both fundraising and riding 50 laps is.

Step 3: Start training for the ultimate test of physical and mental fitness in the pursuit of the ultimate prize.
