Multi-Laser Raises Money for Children's Charity
ONTARIO, Canada More than 150 elite cyclists from across Canada and the United States competed in this year's Multi-Laser Fall Grand Prix in Gananoque. First place was taken by William Innes of California. Innes, who was competing as part of the Multi-Laser team, had just returned from Italy after competing in the grueling Copodarco Grand Prix.
Ray Duggan of Kingston, a 15 year resident of Gananoque placed second in the two-day points system event. On the women's side, Merrill Collins of Toronto picked up top honors. The gold sanctioned event wrapped up with a "criterium race" on a 1-kilometre course in Downtown Gananoque.
The second annual event was sponsored by Multi-Laser Inc. of Gananoque, a firm that manufactures toner cartridges for printers. "Everything turned out perfectly including the weather," said Brian Cosgrove, president and CEO.
The Children's Cancer Fund at the Kingston Regional Cancer Centre will receive $15 from each entry fee. The money raised, in addition to a contribution from Multi-Laser, puts the donation to the Children's Fund at $5,000 dollars.
