This year’s Ride for Diabetes Research surpassed expectations bringing in more than $6.9 million for diabetes research, a $700,000 increase from 2009! The event was held in 16 cities across Canada and welcomed two cities, Edmonton and Sudbury, as the newest ride locations.
As a new contender from Canada, Macquarie Financial Group was one of 2010’s success stories. Macquarie teams participated in six ride sites nationally, and with their corporate matching program, raised more than $170,000 for diabetes research. What tremendous support from a company new to the ride! We eagerly look forward to their contribution in 2011!
