Prairie Pedal

Meet Shane Saunderson.

Shane biked from Calgary to Toronto to raise money for Myeloma Canada. Shane's father was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma just over two years ago, so he took this trip to help raise money and awareness for the disease.

The people at Celgene Canada were nice enough to help Shane out on his bike ride, making a huge donation of $10,000 to his fundraising efforts. So Shane and Kevin Leshuk Celgene Canada's GM biked from Princess Margaret Hospital in downtown Toronto to Celgene's offices in Oakville to accept the cheque.

I'd like to say that I biked along with them the entire distance, but really, I just stopped along the way to get a few pictures.

Celgene GM Kevin Lushuk waits for Shane Saunderson to bike up at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto.

Shane bikes up to meet Kevin to start the trip.
