In September of 2019, 20 Chicago Firefighters (part of the Ignite The Spirit Fund) biked from Chicago to Toronto in a week averaging just over 80 miles a day. All the proceeds raised from their ride went to their Ignite The Spirit fund which fundraises year round for members in their community and for brothers and sister in their hour of need.
The 20 bike riders stopped at Station 6 in Oakville along their route. 1A shift was working and hosted the 20 riders on one of their breaks that day. A couple of months after their successful ride, we received a very unexpected cheque donation from the Ignite the Spirit Fund for our own Benevolent Fund in the amount of $500.00.
We want to thank our brothers and sisters from Chicago for their generous donation. Please visit their website to see all the great initiatives and learn more about the Ignite The Spirit Fund.
