Toronto, June 13, 2016 – For the fourth consecutive year, Nicholas Fidei, President of Treasure Hill Homes, has taken part in the Ride to Conquer Cancer. As an avid cyclist, Mr. Fidei realized that this would be the perfect way to combine his passion with a great cause. In the first three years of participation his team, Cycle Warriors, raised over $370,000.
On June 11th and 12th, Cycle Warriors participated in their fourth annual ride with 32 members on the team. For this year’s ride, they set their goals higher than ever before. They had high hopes to raise a total of $250,000 for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Mr. Fidei explains, “I knew that we would be able to exceed what we have done in the past. It’s important to always set your goals higher, especially when the money goes to an amazing charity like Princess Margaret.” Through hard work and determination, team members’ efforts contributed to help Cycle Warriors raise a total amount of approximately $325,000, surpassing their original goal by $75,000. “The results were inspiring this year. The number of people who were willing to help our cause motivated us to work harder to make a difference,” claims Mr. Fidei.
After this year’s ride, Mr. Fidei was ranked second as the highest personal fundraiser during the event. He personally raised just over $202,000. The remainder of the team also gathered an impressive $123,000, making them the eighth highest ranked team in the overall fundraising standings.
Next year is the 10th annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, which means the event and goals will be higher than ever before. Cycle Warriors and Nick Fidei could not be more excited for the next year’s ride as he expresses, “This year’s team was fantastic and put in their greatest efforts to help achieve our highest success so far. We look forward to another amazing event next year as we celebrate the 10th annual ride, and Cycle Warriors’ fifth year participating.”
Thanks to the collective efforts of 4,253 participants, $17.3 million was raised for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Over the past 9 years, a ground-breaking $136.3 million has been raised for the charity. Through the continued efforts of all the teams and participants, next year’s 10th anniversary should be the most successful year to date.
