A regional manager for Hikvision Canada Inc., a provider of security hardware equipment and software solutions, Barry Paisley, rode his motorcycle in the June 21-23 Kinsmen Ride for a Lifetime raising CAD $2,500 to benefit the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta (KCCFA), exceeding his fundraising goal by 250 percent.

This was the 17th annual Kinsmen Ride for a Lifetime. Participants spend three days on their motorcycles and ride 400-500 km. (248-310 miles) per day in support of this worthy cause. This year’s route took riders through Banff, Canada along Highway 1 and 1A, and south on Highway 93 through Alberta and British Columbia.

Helping kids and families battling cancer

KCCFA supports children and families affected by childhood cancer through funding and other programsI participate in the Ride for a Lifetime every year because I am passionate about its cause. All funds raised go to KCCFA and their Camp Kindle program. The camp gives kids and families who are fighting or have fought cancer a chance to get away from hospitals and doctors, to relax and be kids instead of patients,” said Paisley.

KCCFA supports children and families affected by childhood cancer through funding and other programs. Last year, Ride for a Lifetime participants raised CAD $170,000 for the foundation. To date, the 2019 event raised CAD $155,000.

Corporate social responsibility is an important Hikvision value. Team members like Barry do a great job leading the way and garnering support from other Hikvision employees when they participate in important fundraising events, like the Ride of a Lifetime,” said Marianne Chew, Hikvision director of marketing. She added that Hikvision has sponsored several events in the past year across North America with participation from Hikvision Canada and Hikvision USA employees.
