Wednesday, July 5th was a day filled with sunshine, crazy costumes and sweat for a good cause at the Longo’s head office. Our official partner, Longo’s Markets, hosts an annual fundraiser in support of children and their families living with and beyond childhood cancer. Humber’s Centre for Healthy Living was there to support the cause and discuss healthy living programs and practices with Longo’s staff.
At the Inside Ride fundraiser, teams made up of Longo’s employees from various locations ride a stationary bike for ten minutes to see which team can complete the farthest distance. Each team wears elaborate costumes and brings all their energy and spirit along with them. At the end of the day, prizes are awarded for highest biking mileage, best costume, most spirit and most money raised per team, store and individual. Overall, Longo’s raised approximately $64,000 dollars this year for the Inside Ride Foundation!
The Centre for Healthy Living was on-site to discuss our Healthy Living Program and student personal training options, which are offered to Longo’s employees at no cost.
Thank you to Longo’s Markets for inviting the Centre for Healthy Living to be part of such an exciting and vibrant day. We are thrilled to be part of your ever-growing efforts in the promotion of healthy living.
