Toronto, Ontario -- November 2, 2015 -- A team from Assured Automotive recently participated in the JDRF Ride for Diabetes Research charity event in downtown Toronto. JDRF formerly operated as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
The JDRF Ride for Diabetes Research is a “high-energy, stationary ride” that brings together business leaders and employees from across Canada. The Assured Automotive team took part in this charity stationary bike riding session. This marks the second year in a row Assured Automotive has taken part.
“Back in 2014 a challenge was put forth to the insurance industry – get on your bikes and ride. Insurance sector colleagues were asked to step up to the challenge and get involved in the JDRF Ride for Diabetes Research. When the cause was brought to the attention of CEO Desmond D'Silva. He gave his support, both financially and as a rider participating on the ride day,” says Grant Gerow, Chief Financial Officer of Assured Automotive. “For two years now, groups of Assured Automotive employees made the trek down to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, to raise both funds and awareness. It has been a great team building event, and supports a great cause.”
The JDRF Ride brings thousands of individuals together for a stationary bike ride in teams of five, with corporations from across the country participating with large teams joining in to help celebrate achievement and advocate awareness. For more information, please visit jdrf.ca.
