Princess Margaret - Ride To Conquer Cancer
On behalf of the Executive Board and Staff at Carpenters & Allied Workers Local 27, we are proud to have sponsored with Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer®. This 2-day cycling event journeyed over 200km from Toronto to Niagara Falls. The funds raised during the Ride event support vital cancer research, treatment, care and prevention programs in Ontario and across Canada.
We are proud to announce that 500 Riders took on the HAMMER physical and fundraising challenge in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
