On August 17-18, 2019, Shawcor employees biked hundreds of kilometers in Canada in support of the communities we work in.
For the third year in a row, Shawcor assembled a team of riders for the two-day Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer event. Since 2017, Shawcor has raised over $120,000 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Funds raised support breakthrough cancer research, clinical trials, enhanced care and the discovery of new cancer therapies at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Cross Cancer Institute and 15 other centres in Alberta. The 2019 Ride, which spanned 206 kilometers, raised $5.9 million.
In Southampton, Ontario, Shawcor was a proud sponsor of the 2nd Annual Gran Fondo Lake Huron. The Shawcor ride team was part of 1,000 riders at the sold-out charity ride. Funds raised by riders for the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation will be used to purchase a portable ultrasound machine for the emergency department, a patient wander safety system and two new hospital beds.
At Shawcor, we value engaging with local communities and more importantly, believe in reciprocating the support we receive. We are proud of the efforts our employees have made and look forward to participating again next year.
