Posted on

On September 18th, 2015, Carrington Group’s Hope Builders brought a team of staff members together to ride the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Big Bike in order to help raise funds for this cause.

A HUGE thank you to everyone for making the Big Bike Event so successful! To those who donated, to staff who asked for donations, to those that helped ride the bike, the cheering team, our disc jockey for entertaining and the Social Committee for putting on a BBQ to celebrate the day, we can’t thank each of you enough. Together, Hope Builders collected $7,265.99 in donations then the Hope Builders Charitable Program topped it off with a $2000 donation for total funds raised for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of $9265.99!
