Inaugural I Run & Rock Event Huge Success!
On June 1st PACE sponsored the i Run & Rock 1, 5 and 10km run which took place in Newmarket, Ontario. In addition to the run, there was a concert featuring Canadian artists Glass Tiger.
The event was to recognize first responders in the Police, Fire, EMS and Military services and their struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
PACE Vice President Dan Coldwell said “Our community is very lucky to have people like Frank, Nicole and Lisa. By their actions, they obviously care about people, the community in which we live and most certainly the community of first responders. When we were approached to support this event, it was a very natural fit because PACE has the same values.”
Plans are already underway for next year’s event.

PACE contributes to $36,000 donation to Covenant House Toronto
The Benincasa family has supported Covenant House Toronto in memory of Matthew Benincasa annually through fundraisers like a `Fun Night of Comedy`. PACE Credit Union matches what they raise each year providing a larger donation. This year the Benincasa family along with PACE, donated an outstanding $36,000 to Covenant House Toronto. Donations like this help to provide 24/7 crisis care for homeless youth ages 16-24 in the Toronto area. They receive a wide range of services including education, counseling, health care and employment assistance. Covenant House is a safe place that encourages at risk youth to believe in themselves. PACE has a corporate social responsibility to contribute to programs that help the community as much at Covenant House.
