This year, Trisura entered with a team of 10 runners who were able to achieve amazing times and results.

Out of almost 1500 runners, James Bennett (Senior Underwriter) finished in 11th place with an amazing race time of 18:09 minutes. Michael Kalakauskas (Underwriter) followed not long after in 19:49 minutes and Dave Scotland (VP, Finance & Controller) came in just behind him at 19:51, both finishing in the top 50.

Big kudos to the entire Trisura team – together they raised $1,675 for the United Way. While at first it seemed doubtful, even the weather cooperated and everyone had a great time. We look forward to participating in the event again next year.

Since 2001, the Scotiabank Rat Race has brought together executives and business professionals in the GTA to run or walk a 5 km race in order to raise funds for the United Way and their network of 200 health and social service agencies.

Established in 1956, United Way supports agencies that provide services to strengthen individuals, families and communities.

This year’s race so far has raised over $520,000 of their $600,000 goal. But it’s not too late to make a donation! Fundraising continues until 5:00 pm on July 11th.
