Dear Dojo-Ryo- Sai (Dojo brothers and sisters),

As some of you may recall, last year I did a charity bike ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls for Eva’s Place, a homeless youth shelter in Toronto. Through your support and encouragement, we raised close to $1000, almost double the initial goal of $500.

This year, I will be riding from Toronto to Montreal in support of The Neighborhood Organization (TNO), aiming to raise $1000by August 19.

TNO is a Toronto community centre that offers a range of services to immigrant and refugee families. I will be specifically supporting the youth program that provides services such as employment assistance, vocational training, after-school programs, language learning, etc. to persons between the ages of 14-29. 

I am currently in contact with the management team at TNO to set up link that you can share and also use to donate. I will share an update as soon as this is finalized.


As this is a birthday charity ride, I kindly ask that you support the campaign by donating and sharing the message, in lieu of birthday drinks, cards, etc. Your support would mean a great deal.

Onwards and Upwards Mr Pesteh
