“Bruce Power is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Gran Fondo,” said Chris Mercanti, Bruce Power’s Manager of Community Relations. “This event was a huge success in its first year, and I have no doubt it will be even more exciting in 2019.

“This is our second year running the Gran Fondo Lake Huron fundraising cycling event throughout Bruce County in support of the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation,” says Tracy Murray, Executive Director of the Foundation.  “Bruce Power was such a strong supporter last year as a Platinum sponsor and now to return as ‘The Presenting Sponsor’ of this event, we couldn’t be more thrilled or grateful for their tremendous support of the Foundation!”

“Bruce Power has such a strong commitment to social responsibility and giving back to the surrounding communities, especially initiatives in the healthcare, mental health and education sectors,”added Murray, and we are so thankful for their ongoing support of the Foundation and are honoured to announce that the Gran Fondo Lake Huron will now be the ‘Gran Fondo Lake Huron Presented by Bruce Power’.”

According to Hospital Foundation Chair, Jim Barbour, “On-line registrations are already over last year at this time, so we are really looking forward to a great event this summer.”

Some sponsorship opportunities are still available for those interested in supporting quality, patient centred care close to home.
