Cycling for The Dwelling Place of NY

On Thursday, April 25, 2019. Employees of Scotiabank, NYC Corporate Office, participated in an indoor cycling class held at Equinox Brookfield Place from 5:15 pm – 6:00 pm to benefit The Dwelling Place. This event was initiated by Thomas O’Rourke, a Dwelling Place Board Member, and co-sponsored by the Scotiabank Women’s Advocacy Group(SWAG) and the Scotiabank Wellness Group ERG.

Thirty-four employees purchased tickets to join in the class as a Healthy Helper ($50), a Generous Giver ($100), or a Super Supporter ($200). Thirteen other employees, unable to attend, contributed by offering donations. Some additional donations are still on their way. Together the Scotiabank team raised $3,469+ to benefit the women served at The Dwelling Place. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

The staff and residents of The Dwelling Place sent messages of gratitude and encouragement to the riders to be read during the event.

Katelyn Schulz, one of the organizers of the event described the experience, “We at Scotia had a great time organizing this event for The Dwelling Place of NY and we are so happy to contribute to such a worthwhile cause. Thank you for letting us be a part of your story! We wish you all the best!”

Everyone at The Dwelling Place was touched by the creativity and energy of our friends at Scotiabank for arranging and participating in this special event. Special thanks to organizers Tom and Katelyn from Scotiabank, and to Kristen Dunn, a social media volunteer for The Dwelling Place, who helped create the fundraising platform for ticket sales.

As one of our women residents wrote in her message: Team Scotiabank, you rock!!!
