Lost peddles, prior commitments, being late to the starting gate… Nothing was going to stop the Colliers Project Leaders’ Winnipeg office from competing in the recent 19th annual Cycle on Life.

Members of our office team joined over 275+ riders on June 4 for the event held by Riverview Health Centre Foundation. This years’ Cycle raised over $150,000 to support Alzheimer’s & Dementia. 

Our team fundraised $2,305 and ranked third overall among the corporate teams who participated.   Furthermore, the company was proud to be a corporate sponsor.

The Collier Project Leaders team had their share of surprises during the 25 km ride that weaved along the Red River. Principal Kevin Sim lost a bike peddle on two different occasions, but was able to finish the course thanks to a fellow cyclist who saved the day with a trusty wrench. 

Assistant Project Manager Lindsay Pike and her friend Bayn Solomon were ready to turn their cycle into a triathlon (minus the swim) as they were late to the starting gate and had to add in a run in order to make the ride.

Finally, Principal Wendy Janzen did not let being unable to make the ride due to prior commitments stop her from making a difference. In true project management style, she hired three sub-contractors to fill in on her behalf – her husband, Brad, daughter, Fiona, and son, Jacob. Filling in for his wife turned out to be advantageous for Brad; for the first time in his life, he won a gift prize.

“An outstanding day,” Colliers Project Leaders Senior Project Manager and Event Committee Chair Michael Erlanger exclaimed. “We couldn’t have asked for better. We had beautiful weather, enthusiastic riders and raised a great amount of money. It sets a good bar to try and surpass next year for our 20th anniversary.”
