This is an opportunity for the Canadian Insurance Industry to help share the power of a wish®
In 2011 your industry friends and colleagues embarked on an inaugural four day five hundred kilometre cycle between Toronto and Ottawa to raise funds for Make-A-Wish® and to kick start the 2011 Canadian RIMS conference. That first Cycle for Wishes team was brought together by John Haas of Integro (Canada) Ltd. and consisted of 11 enthusiastic cyclists and 4 well organized support team members. It was a fun, rewarding and memorable experience.
Most rewarding was that we helped grant five kids their wishes by raising over $53,000. This amount far exceeded our expectations and was only accomplished through the help of our committed corporate supporters, friends, family members and industry colleagues who all donated generously.
The Cycle for Wishes team is at it again. On Wednesday September 23rd over 20 insurance industry professionals from around the world will depart Montreal, and five hundred kilometers later, arrive in Quebec City on Saturday September 26th to kick-start the RIMS Canada Conference 2015, Panorama, in Quebec City. Our 2015 goal is raise in excess of $55,000 for Make-A-Wish® Canada.
To succeed we need your help. We would greatly appreciate your company becoming one of the team’s Corporate Champions. You can become our Champion by:
2) Sponsoring a rider by sending a cheque in the amount of $500 payable to Integro (Canada) Ltd. Identify that the cheque is for the 2015 Cycle for Wishes team. Integro will hold these funds in trust. The funds will be used to offset personal expenses of team members. Any excess funds will be paid to Make-A-Wish®. A charitable tax receipt will not be issued for rider sponsorship. Please contact John Haas to arrange: John.Haas@integrogroup.com
