With the help of Friends, families and Sponsors (Bloomberg, Davies Ward & Selerity) Vigilant Global’s Vigi4Cure team completed their fourth journey to Quebec City on July 11-12 with the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. A total of 1,347 participants raised a total of $4.9 million for the Segal Cancer Center at the Jewish General Hospital.
The ride was smooth, minus one small collision which left a rider with a cracked biked frame at the end of day one. Luckily, that rider was not badly injured and the Ride’s organizers were able to fix him up a new bike for day two. There was a sense of true team spirit was in the air.
Each year, this event brings an incredible group of people together and is such a well-run event, that’s why “it’s my favorite weekend of the summer,” says Arvind Ramanathan, Vigilant’s co-founder, director and Team Captain.
It’s incredible to see people of all ages come together for such an amazing cause. We cannot wait to be a part of the 2016 ride, where some of our team members are due to receive their ‘Golden Helmet’ which is given to riders who have participated for five years.
