Govan Brown



On Sunday, September 28th, 8 members of the Govan Brown staff took part in the Cycling 4 St, Joe's Charity bike ride near Eagle's Nest Golf Course in Caledon (north of Toronto). Money raised from the event went directly to St. Joe's Health Centre, one of the busiest emergency departments in the GTA. From the funds raised, participants and their donors were supporting training for St. Joe's physicians and staff, patients, facility renovations and medical equipment. The ride provided the option of  participating in 15, 45 or 75 km rides. Registration  began

at 7:30 am and the 250 participants through their fundraising efforts managed to  raise over $215,000. The ride was followed by a lunch buffet and a closing awards cermony. Along  with riding in the event, Govan Brown also acted as a valued sponsor of the ride. Impressively, our team managed to raise amongst themselves over $12,000. In our matching biking uniforms, we  were quite the attraction out on the road. Also, while also looking flashy, the majority of our participants chose the grueling 75 km scenic route. It was an eventful day, and being able

to participate in such a great cause was a rewarding experience for all involved.
