UFCW Canada Local 1000A is proud to congratulate the Ottawa Retail Franchise Division for its hard work and dedication in raising $1,320 in the fight against Leukemia & Lymphoma.
The division undertook multiple initiatives last year, including a TV raffle, book sales, and a bake sale to fundraise for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. “All in all, we are very pleased and happy with everyone who participated in all these initiatives,” said Gord Knowles, President of the Ottawa Retail Franchise Division. “Without their support, we wouldn’t have been able to do what we did.”
Even the rain couldn’t keep Local 1000A riders from the third annual Ride for a Cure event.
Despite rain showers throughout the day, nearly 23 bikers and passengers took to the winding backroads of Southern Ontario to do their part to help fund a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma on Saturday August 11.
Since adopting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada as its charity of choice in 1985, UFCW Canada raised more than $31 million for leukemia research. One of the ways Local 1000A helps contribute to this impressive tally is with our annual Cash Calendar fundraiser. Everyday in 2015, those who purchased a 2015 Cash Calendar will have the chance to win.
