When picturing an average weekend in July, one would rarely think of 40km winds, rain and cold temperatures. However, all of the above played a part in the 2016 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, testing the determination of participants, organisers and volunteers alike. More than 1,200 cyclists journeyed two days in the tough conditions, including a team of 23 Vigilant Global employees from our Montreal offices and friends.
"Each year is a memorable experience, but the 2016 ride will go down in the books as the toughest one yet," said Steve Sulpizio, a Vigilant Global rider who has been with the team four years in a row. "Although it was the toughest, it was also the most rewarding." That's a sentiment shared by the team as a whole.
Vigi 4 Cure raised over $60,000 (£35,000) this year, setting a new team fundraising record. Altogether, the event raised $4.4 million (£2.3 million) to support breakthrough research, teaching and compassionate care.
Congratulations to all those involved!
