In addition to raising a considerable charitable sum to combat prostate cancer while growing some upper-lip hair on behalf of Movember, the Dundas Dash-staches finished within the Top 2% Worldwide! Adding to the holiday cheer, Dundas also hosted their annual Toy Drive in December which saw the company donate over 100 items to the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto.
“For all the great work that we do behind closed doors at Dundas, it’s important that we make sure that we’re contributing at an equal rate to our neighborhood and community” explained Jon Hazell, Dundas Community Outreach Coordinator. Added Jon, “Dundas is looking forward to continuing its charitable endeavors through the end of 2012 and the first stretch of 2013 with our Ride for Heart and upcoming Ottawa Marathon.”
As part of their upcoming community outreach activities, Dundas has entered a team to participate in both the Becel 75 kilometer Ride for Heart as well the 42.2 kilometer (21.1 mile) Ottawa Marathon. The Dundas team will work diligently towards building the donation sum as the race approaches through both typical means as well as several exciting fundraising activities they have planned.
