Halifax-based Colliers employees from Colliers Project Leaders and Colliers International are coming together in the battle to fight cancer. The team of dedicated riders has given themselves the moniker, “the Colliers Crusaders”, as they prepare for their upcoming bike ride.
This Saturday, October 1, they will join more than 300 other cyclists in a ride from Mahone Bay to Halifax. Participants commit to ride either 130 km via the road curse, or choose from 100, 50 or 25 km options via trail.
Colliers Project Leaders will be represented by Kristina Kelly, Andrew Kent, Jeff Stewart, Jeff Gardner of Gardner Electric, Stephen Vaslet, Shane Melanson, and Team Leader Hugh Bray.
Representing Colliers International will be Greg Brewster, Aaron Ferguson, Roger Kennedy, Janice Mitchell, Mitch O’Neill, David Rose, Greg Taylor, Adam Tenwolde and Arielle Thomson.
“This whole experience has been beneficial on so many levels,” explains Bray. “It’s about two Colliers teams coming together to take on this project and to demonstrate our social responsibility. In Atlantic Canada, 15,000 individuals are diagnosed with cancer each year. We really want to work together to make a difference in the fight against this disease.”
Funds raised by this event support patients by funding blood cancer research, and patient education and support programs through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. The QEII Health Sciences Centre will also be able to purchase equipment for cancer treatment thanks to supporter donations.
The Colliers Crusaders are currently number four in the top 25 fundraising teams listed on The Ride for Cancer website. As of Tuesday, September 27 and well before the ride has even started, they have surpassed their team goal of $20,000 in donations with three more donation days to go!
“Hopefully the weather will cooperate for us,” smiles Bray. “But either way, we are going to have a great ride for a great cause.”
