RBC Gives Back by Cycling for Strong Kids

YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids: a cause-worthy team building event

Local staff of the Royal Bank of Canada believe in growing the potential of their clients and the community as a whole, which is why they are excited to participate in YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids this year.

“We pride ourselves on giving back to our local community through volunteerism and fundraising efforts,” says Arthur Monahan, RBC Rutland Branch Manager. “The YMCA’s mission is a great fit for our staff because we both place a high importance on educating and advocating for our clients so they can lead the healthiest life possible. Financial health plays a significant role in a person’s overall health and we want to make sure our clients feel secure and help them make decisions that will bring them success.”

“The fact that our participation in YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids will help children and families right here in the Okanagan is a great feeling,” explains Natasha Sazonova, RBC Rutland Manager of Client Care. “We are so fortunate to live in Kelowna and understand how important it is to give back locally.”

YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids will take place September 19 from 7am–2pm outside the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre. It is an excellent team building opportunity for businesses with each team registering for a 45 minute stationary cycle class and rallying together to raise money for local children and families in need.

This year, RBC wants to grow their team with a goal of filling a time slot, which would amount to 55 bikes total.
“This event is a great opportunity to bring our employees, across Kelowna, together and for each of us to make a positive contribution to our community,” says Arthur.

YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids will include a silent auction, kids zone, smoothies and tasty treats. An early bird prize draw for a Specialized Hybrid Sport Bike, donated by Fresh Air, is in effect for individuals who register before July 31.

Sign up today and help the Y reach their fundraising goal of $75,000—providing opportunities for local kids to build confidence, independence and self-esteem.

YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids is presented by Delcourt Wealth Management at ScotiaMcLeod and Fresh Air. Event day sponsors include Jugo Juice, BDO, Raymond James Ltd., Milestones Grill + Bar and Big White Ski Resort.
