2006 Cornwall Ride for a Cure raises $228 for LLSC

It may have been a rainy Saturday morning, but spirits were high for the 1st UFCW Ride for a Cure in Cornwall. Organizers Mary Brisbois, a steward at Prince Foods in Cornwall and her husband Mark, helped raise $218 in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).

“The biggest part of today’s ride for me and the other riders came when a nine year old girl, whose friend was recently diagnosed with Leukemia, approached us during one of our stops and made a donation of her allowance money,” said Mark Brisbois.

The event, which took place on July 15, 2006, began in Cornwall and followed a picturesque route along the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Iroquois lift lock before heading north through the countryside. At the St-Albert’s Cheese Factory in St-Albert riders stopped for a quick sampling before heading back to Murphy’s Inn in Cornwall.

At the Inn, participants sat down for a buffet lunch and drawing of prizes with Daniel Mercier, a Local 175 union rep the Cornwall area.
