Employee teams to race wheel-to-wheel on tiny trikes in historic banking hall
TORONTO, May 5, 2015 /CNW/ – On Tuesday, May 12, 2015, CIBC Mellon employees will host their second annual Tricycle Grand Prix as part of fundraising efforts for the 2015 Shoppers Drug Mart OneWalk to Conquer Cancer campaign benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Organized by the company’s employee OneWalk fundraising team, CIBC Mellon’s Tricycle Grand Prix is a relay-style head-to-head tournament in which teams of four race against each other in pursuit of a prestigious victory photo, one year of bragging rights, and support for a great cause. Taking place in the 1920’s art deco banking hall at 320 Bay Street, each team is required to make a minimum donation to OneWalk to Conquer Cancer in order to compete. Last year’s event featured 17 teams and amassed more than $4,800 in donations.
This event exemplifies CIBC Mellon’s ongoing effort to engage employees in making a positive difference for the communities where we live and work. The Weekend Walkers and other CIBC Mellon employee teams continue to take advantage of corporate responsibility programs such as a 50 per cent match for funds raised by employee teams and a donation of at least $100 for each participant in a corporate volunteering activity.
Media, clients and business stakeholders are invited to join hundreds of employees on May 12, 2015 for an afternoon of cheering, fun and perhaps even tricycle-peddling.
Donations in support of Team CIBC Mellon’s OneWalk campaign are also invited.
