McLeish Orlando Supports BIST 5k Run, Walk and Roll and SCIO Wheelchair Relay Challenge
This past weekend, McLeish Orlando staff, family and friends came out to support two very important causes in our community. In spite of the rain on Saturday, there were close to 300 participants who finished the race for the 3rd Annual BIST 5K Run.
Through sponsorship, fundraising and registration, BIST generated over $50,000 that will go a long way in supporting programs, services and efforts to raise brain injury awareness.
The Brain Injury Society of Toronto supports brain injury survivors and family members. BIST aims to enhance the quality of life for people in the City of Toronto, living with the effects of brain injury through education, awareness, support and advocacy.

As part of our weekend of giving back, on Sunday we participated in Spinal Cord Injury Ontario’s Wheelchair Relay Challenge held at Ontario Place. Our team was led by team captains: William Keele and Randal Brown who were also on the planning committee for the event. It was a great morning to be outdoors, with over 500 participants helping to raise funds for individuals with spinal cord injuries.
