As part of our ongoing commitment to Spinal Cord Injury Ontario (SCI Ontario), we were pleased to be actively involved in this annual Wheelchair Relay which was held on a sunny Sunday, September 20th at Monarch Park Stadium.  the theme this year was 70s, with many teams sporting peace signs and afros. The event raised more than $100,000. Congratulations to all the organizers for putting on a tremendous event, all for a great cause.

Results: Top Finishers

Thanks to a great team and an awesome racing chair, this year’s HSH Hurricanes blew away most of the competition, losing out on third place by a mere one second (see results below).
We were more proud for being awarded 2nd prize for corporate fund raising.
