Tomlinson Red Army raises over $650,000 for cancer research over 3 years

Despite inclement weather, the Tomlinson Red Army team of cyclists raised $165,250.35 for The Ride 2015, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s annual fundraising event for cancer research. The final cycling event, scheduled for Sunday, September 13th, had to be cancelled due to rain. However, the team of 75 Tomlinson employees and partners had already raised thousands of dollars through weekly practice rides leading up to the September event, supported by generous corporate sponsors and individual donors. Donations are still coming in but to date, the Tomlinson team has raised over $650,000 for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation over the last three years. These contributions have helped fund new therapies and the opening of the Centre for Innovative Cancer Research (CICR), and have enabled patients to benefit from clinical trials faster than ever before.

“I am incredibly proud of the achievements of our Tomlinson team and I would like to thank all of our corporate sponsors who have made this possible,” said Kevin Cinq-Mars, Tomlinson President. “A special thanks to Jeff Tomlinson for being the 2015 Team Captain and helping to guide our efforts to support the community we operate in.”
