FCT Fundraising for the 2013 Around the Bay Road Race

FCT sizing up the Around the Bay fund-“racing” field for 2013

HAMILTON, ONTARIO, January 31, 2013 – FCT (First Canadian Title) is looking forward to the fund “racing” for the 2013 Around the Bay Road Race. In 2012, FCT marked its 8th consecutive year as St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation’s top corporate fundraising team for the Around the Bay Road Race.

“As the top corporate fundraiser, FCT would like to welcome all the returning and new fundraising teams to the 2013 field. However, it is our intention to keep our title as the top fundraising team,” said Hamilton native and FCT President Patrick Chetcuti. Once again FCT plans to again enter about 70 racers on its fundraising team this year. Corporately the FCT Around the Bay Team led by Co-Captains Nancy Hanzel & Lynda Frizell is targeting another banner year with a goal to match or exceed last year’s record fundraising year.

During the 2012 race alone, FCT raised a record amount of pledges for St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton — $20,425.50. Since 2005, FCT has cumulatively raised more than $110,000 for St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton through their continued, unrivaled support of the Around the Bay Road Race.

“St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation is so proud of the relationship it shares with FCT Hamilton. For eight years ‘running’, FCT has been the top corporate fundraising team in the historic Around the Bay Road Race in support of St. Joe’s. Since they first signed on as a fundraising team, the employees of FCT have collectively and cumulatively raised more than $110,000 to support patient care and research at the Hospital. The Bay Race is a tremendous team building experience for the employees at FCT, but moreover, the funds they raise are having a marked impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients our Hospital serves each and every year. FCT is truly helping to make Hamilton a healthier community,” stated Sera Filice-Armenio, President & CEO, St Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation.

FCT’s Hamilton Office in operation since 1994, is located on Hughson Street and currently employs over 170 people.
