Alectra raises more than $126,000 for cancer research

Alectra Corporate Communications News Release / 2017/06/14

MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 14, 2017 – A team of 41 Alectra employees cycled for two days in the annual Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® on June 10 and 11, travelling more than 200 kilometres between Toronto and Niagara Falls. Together, the Alectra team contributed over $126,000 to the $20.5 million total that 5,000 riders raised in support of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

This past weekend marked the first year the team rode under the new company name, Alectra. In 2016, prior to forming the new company and under the team name Power4, employees of Enersource, Horizon Utilities, Hydro One Brampton and PowerStream came together for the ride in support of cancer research.

“Each and every one of us has been touched by cancer in some way. Our employees’ ongoing commitment and support of the Ride to Conquer Cancer and the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is consistent with the values we are embedding across this new organization,” explained Brian Bentz, President and CEO of Alectra Inc. and one of the riders on the team.

Funds raised through the Ride support Personalized Cancer Medicine research, treatment advances, education and new standards of care at Princess Margaret. Donations are allocated into four main areas: detect, diagnose, target and support. Personalized Cancer Medicine is a multi-faceted, integrated approach to cancer care that focuses on the unique nature of each patient.
