Race event is part of employee fundraising for the 2015 Shoppers Drug Mart OneWalk to Conquer Cancer
TORONTO, May 25, 2015 /CNW/ - On Tuesday, May 12, 2015, CIBC Mellon employees hosted their second annual Tricycle Grand Prix as part of fundraising efforts for the 2015 Shoppers Drug Mart OneWalk to Conquer Cancer benefitting the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Hundreds of CIBC Mellon employees came out to cheer 15 teams as they raced tiny trikes through CIBC Mellon's historic banking hall at 320 Bay St.
"CIBC Mellon employees have raised more than $126,000 over the past three years to help conquer cancer in our lifetime," said Karen Adams, Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives, OneWalk to Conquer Cancer at The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, who was on hand to help kick off the event. "We are so grateful for the passion, enthusiasm and energy of team CIBC Mellon, which was so clearly on display at their amazing trike race – we look forward to walking with them and all our walkers on September 12th in our inaugural OneWalk.
"While I regret that the HR team didn't take the checkered flag this year, it was great to see employees come together with so much excitement around raising funds for this important cause," said Sue Simone, Senior Vice President, Human Resources and Corporate Communications, CIBC Mellon and Honorary Chair of the company's OneWalk Team. "Our annual Tricycle Grand Prix is a great example of how CIBC Mellon employees are engaged in making a positive difference for the communities where we live and work."
CIBC Mellon's finance department team was largely graceful in victory, celebrating with an entirely appropriate number of victory laps, high fives and fist bumps as they claimed bragging rights for 2015.
