Lawyers, staff and even a client of Stikeman Elliott LLP participated in the recent Ride to Conquer Cancer, raising approximately $84,000 for Toronto’s Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
The team, which is the leading law firm in fundraising, had 21 cyclists who journeyed over 200 kilometres from Toronto to Niagara Falls June 10-11. This is the sixth year the firm has participated in this fundraising event.
“Every member of our firm is touched by [cancer] in some way,” says Mario Paura, partner at Stikeman Elliott LLP and team member on the ride. “To ride as 21 riders strong all day is a very emotional roller coaster when you’re with a couple of cancer survivors and truly riding as one team.”
