Mackenzie Health Foundation Ride for Health presented by CIBC
On June 28, Mackenzie Health Foundation and event co-chairs Domenic Gurreri and Mark Roccatani launched the inaugural Ride for Health presented by CIBC. Although the ride was cancelled due to poor weather, the rain and cold didn’t dampen the riders’ spirits. More than half came out, not to ride, but to celebrate. It was a fun-filled day of amazing food and great camaraderie in support of Mackenzie Health. The Mackenzie Health Foundation Rider Cup was awarded to the top fundraiser, Mackenzie Health’s very own Dr. J. Robert Madronich.
