This year the LMP Big Bike team, led by cytopathology MLT and first-time team captain, Mathew Carter raised over $3000 to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation and all those who battle against heart disease and stroke.
The ride brought out staff members from across the program to endure the heat and humidity, and pedal the oversized 30 seat bike in a loop around Queen’s Park. We were fast on the downhills, sluggish on the up-hills, but enthousiastic from start-to-finish.
The ride was a first for a couple of new riders, a first for our team captain, and a first for our newly named bike, Chetty’s Cheetahs named for LMP Medical Director, Dr. Runjan Chetty. We were also the first team from TGH to kick off the annual Big Bike ride today, and I we can all rest assured we set the bar high!
