Sobeys recognized by Heart and Stroke Big Bike organizers

The Heart and Stroke Big Bike made a special presentation to Sobeys in Golden.

Sobeys in Golden was acknowledged with the Spirit Award from The Heart and Stroke Foundation Big Bike Ride which was held in May in Golden.

Big Bike organizer Jacquie Goldie explained what the award was for.

“This is for the team that is on the bike which has the best spirit. The loudest and were in the spirit of what the Big Bike means. Sobeys did it very well,” Goldie said. “We really want to thank you so much for your participation. It was greatly appreciated and you did a fantastic job.”

Store Manager of Sobeys Cam Dawes said, “It was a great time. I know we had our HR representative out and he just happened to hit it by chance and he had a great time. It was a chance to see what we do in smaller towns.”

Both Dawes and Goldie agreed that Carol Higginson, Store Administrator of Sobeys in Golden, went above and beyond for the fundraiser. Sobeys in Golden stepped up in multiple ways to help raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation

“It was a lot of fun. The staff jumped on board. It means a lot to receive the award. I lost my grandmother from a stroke. This was the first year we ever did this and it was such a success. It is going to be hard to top it but we have a few more ideas,” Higginson said.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation got a warm welcome in Golden as more than 100 riders to the street for a bicycle ride to remember. In total $11,161 was raised at the event.

Goldie once again took the chance to thank every team and person who cam out for the event this year.

“Everybody got into the spirit of the event and had a good time,” she said.
