City employees band together to raise money for Heart and Stroke Foundation
In the fourth annual event of its kind, the City of Moose Jaw employees once again took to the road as an ensemble to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
“It’s one way to get employees and the city, both outside and inside workers, doing something together,” said co-captain of the team Michelle Sanson on Tuesday. “This year we have both fire and police involved too.”
A total of 29 people rode the giant tandem bike, but at least one more participated riding alongside the crew. The ride itself was short, just around 20 minutes, but the logistics of getting such a large bike around the city’s downtown core made it enough of a challenge.
In the end, the team raised about $3,000, something Sanson said was similar to other years. The best part, however, is just getting out in the community.
“It’s fun,” she said. “It’s a good time and a good cause.”
