AtlasCare swings into action

The 19th annual Golf for MS fundraising tournament, sponsored by AtlasCare, raised $64,000, smashing its target of $50,000. Funds raised will go to support the work of the Peel-Dufferin Chapter of the MS Society of Canada.

More than 78 golfers took part in the September event, which is close to the heart of Mechanical Business columnist and AtlasCare chairman and CEO Roger Grochmal, pictured with his team.

He said, “This has been an endeavour that is very near and dear to the Grochmal family. When we needed help, they supported us, and we’re just delighted to support them in return.”

Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world, with an estimated 1 in every 385 Canadians living with the disease. While it is most often diagnosed in young adults aged 20 to 49, younger children and older adults are also diagnosed with the disease. Three times more women are diagnosed than men.
