Tripar proudly sponsored Andrew, our Sales & Marketing Manager, for the 2nd
year of his Cycling challenge to raise money for the Montreal Children’s Hospital. In 2015 he cycled 160 km from Mont Tremblant to the Montreal Children's Hospital, this year he just completed an extended 215 km ride from Parliament hill in Ottawa to the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
The reason Andrew founded this ride is because both of his sons, James and Oscar, (who are the grandchildren of Lloyd Sevack, President of Tripar), went through the Montreal Children’s Hospital. James was born 8 weeks premature and Oscar had meningitis. Both boys had to go through a range of X-rays, MRI’s and spinal taps. All in all, they were both very stressful and worrying times for Andrew, his wife Alexine, James, Oscar and extended families. However, both boys are perfectly healthy now and over the last 2 years the rides have raised $9000 which has gone towards new equipment and support for other children that need it in the Neonatal Unit.
