On September 12th, a team of five Master Group, heating and air conditioning distributor, employees joined thousands of other Montrealers to participate in the Ride for Diabetes Research. This event is a high-energy stationary ride that brings together business leaders and employees from across Canada. The event aims to raise funds for JDRF - global leader in type 1 diabetes research - to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.
Let us be reminded that over 600,000 Canadians suffer from type 1 diabetes and that the annual growth rate of the disease is 3% to 5%. Children aged from 5 to 7 are the most affected by the disease.
Congratulations and thank you to our five intrepid cyclists!
