THIS YEAR’S TOP FUNDRAISING PRIZES
We’re excited to announce our top fundraisers at this year’s Scotiabank Rat Race for United Way and want to thank everyone who helped support our community by collecting pledges.
The top Fundraiser is Peter Heffernan from Scotiabank. He raised $29,048.88. He is a true United Way supporter and over the years has raised close to $60,000 for United Way at this event since 2008! Peter has received the VIP Grey Cup package, which includes two tickets to the 100th Grey Cup in Toronto (held November 2012), plus two tickets to a VIP Grey Cup gala being held at Scotia Plaza. Peter would like to acknowledge the Global Risk Management One Team-One Goal group effort he is a part of with his colleagues.
The top Fundraising Team was Global Wealth Management lead by Tuula Jalasjaa from Scotiabank. Her team won the Workplace Wellness Day Prize Pack that includes all-natural organic manicures, 20-minute relaxation massages, organic skin care samples, holistic nutritional and naturopathic consultations, posture assessments, a one-month subscription to protrainerlive.com, and more, compliments of Grassroots Marketing & PR.
