Ride raises more than awareness
Three days and 600 km later, Novartis welcomed home the employees who took part in the 13th annual Canada Ride for Life. Almost 50 riders took part and raised $75,200 for breast cancer research.
Welcoming arms met the riders as they arrived at the company’s headquarters on September 26. Families and friends glowing with pride held balloons and cheered as their heroes entered its parking lot.
Marie-andrée Cyr, Ride for Life President, Oncology Business Unit, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada, led this year’s effort and praised her colleagues. «Thirteen years and our partnership with Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation continues. I am proud of our team and our donation»
The ride, from Toronto to Montreal, passed through Kingston and Ottawa, is not only a fundraising event, but it is also a celebration of good health by all Novartis emp loyees and breast cancer survivors who were the guests of honor. (DC)
