What does a bicycle have to do with engineering a better world? When someone gets on one and rides miles and miles to raise money to conduct important research, everything.
On Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th, Quanser CEO Paul Gilbert will strap on his helmet, get on his well-used road bike and go on the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer (ERCC) in Toronto, Canada. He and his ERCC Ride teammates are hoping to raise over $64,000 in support of cancer research at Toronto's Princess Margaret Hospital, one of the five leading cancer research centres in the world.
If you live in Canada, you too may wish to take part in the ERCC Ride. It’s taking place on selected weekends in June in major communities all across the country. Should you prefer to help engineer a better world and "ride" with Paul and his teammates by supporting their fundraising efforts, you are welcome to do so.
