V.Ships & CSL ‘Ride to Conquer Cancer’

Tuesday, July 01 - 2014

Today is Canada Day and our colleagues from V.Ships Canada are pleased to announce that employees from their office will come together with client Canada Steamship lines (CSL Group) to take part in a cycle 'Ride to Conquer Cancer'.

The sponsored cycle ride is to raise funds for the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital in Montréal.

A team of 20 V.Ships Canada and CSL employees including CSL Group Owner and Board Member David Martin, CSL President Louis Martel, V.Ships Canada Managing Director Sandy Herriot, and V.Ships Group Trainer Phil Bulman will cycle a total distance of 250km through Quebec's beautiful countryside.

Team V-CSL will cycle from Montréal to Quebec City along the north bank of the St. Lawrence River during 5th and 6th July wearing cycling shirts specially designed to incorporate both V.Ships logo and CSL's signature funnels.

So far Team V-CSL has raised $74,000 of their $100,000 target. They will join 2,500 other cyclists who plan to raise over $6,000,000 in total as part of the 'Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer 2014' campaign.

Team V-CSL will make this ride in memory of CSL and V.Ships employee Fleet Superintendent Alain Larocque who sadly passed away in July 2013 after a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer.
