How much fun would it be to go on a bike ride with 29 of your closest friends and colleagues? Well the Sinclair Technologies staff can tell you – It’s a heart-pumping, cheer-thumping, crazy big, fun ride!
On Friday, May 12th, 29 Sinclair Technologies employees (a division of Norsat) participated in the Heart & Stroke Foundation’s Big Bike event in Aurora, Ontario.
What is Big Bike?
For 20 minutes, 29 riders power one Big Bike. On event day, you pedal through your community and celebrate your accomplishments. While you pedal, you literally stop traffic to support critical heart disease and stroke research. Participants included: Patty, Daniela, Aldo, Kayla, LOM, Corneliu, Stella, Noy, Ken, Ali, TJ, Liz, Franca, Petra, Thavone, Rag, Lilian, Rene, Ernie, Marselina, Boris, Crystal, Jennifer, Farid, Diego, Amy, Anthony, John, James
Fundraising is a key component of the event and the Sinclair staff collected $2,703 in donations. Along with Norsat’s corporate match the team raised $3,703! Congratulations to the Sinclair employees on a job well done. Money raised goes to critical life-saving heart disease and stroke research in hospitals and universities across Canada.
Amy Gesualdo, Sinclair’s event coordinator commented. “It was an incredible day of fun and great team bonding. Events like this are wonderful, it really got everyone to come together and work towards a great cause.”
