Alectra Utilities’ employees showed real heart in fielding a total of seven teams to participate in the 2018 Heart and Stroke Foundation ‘Big Bike’ ride – raising over $22,500.
Employees raised money for heart and stroke research and rode the 29-seat ‘Big Bike’ through communities in Alectra’s service territory including: Barrie, Brampton, Hamilton, Markham, Mississauga, St. Catharines and Vaughan.
Alectra’s team achievement was further boosted by Bill Schmidt, Alectra’s Vice President, Information Technology, who was recognized as a Top Five ‘Big Bike’ fundraiser in York Region. Alectra employees augmented the fundraising total through a company-wide 50/50 draw and cookbook sales.
“Supporting events like Heart and Stroke Foundation ‘Big Bike’ is a key value we embody at Alectra,” says Kimberly Boyle, Senior Vice President, People and Safety. “Our employees put their hearts and energy into building a healthy community, while doing their part to help fund research that’s saving lives.”
