In May, the Transcom team in Barrie (Ontario, Canada) took part in their 4th Big Bike ride for Heart & Stroke, raising a grand total of $1985.00 for a very worthy cause.
The Big Bike is a team event geared towards community organizations, companies, and groups. Our 30-seat Big Bike was piloted by a driver from the Heart & Stroke foundation, and powered by 29 enthusiastic riders from Transcom. Together, they pedaled approximately 2 kilometers in the spirit of Transcom Cares, and in support of heart disease and stroke research.
Adding to the uniqueness of the event, this year’s team rode their Big Bike around Georgian Downs raceway. Although they posed no threat to the track record of 1 minute and 49 seconds, despite the overwhelming advantage of their extra legs, the Heart & Stroke foundation was the big winner, with a great night had by all.
Since 2011, the team in Barrie has raised an astounding $11,000 for Heart & Stroke foundation through their participation in the Big Bike event. Many thanks to Teresa, Trish, and Ashley for volunteering their own time to make the event a success, and to Mallorie for being our top fund raiser this year.Awesome job, team!
