Team Revolution conquers the Granfondo Terracina in support of the Humber River Hospital Foundation
On September 18, 2016, 75 members of Team Revolution flew to Italy to ride the Granfondo Terracina in support of the Humber River Hospital Foundation. The challenging race battling torrential rain and wind through the mountains of Italy was the culmination of a year dedicated to improving personal and community health and wellness by fundraising for the hospital foundation.

Continuing the legacy of his late niece, Carley, Paul Allison, Raymond James Chairman and CEO, rode with Team Revolution as a member of the team "Carley's Angels" with his son, brother and brother-in-law.
"It was an incredible experience," Paul said. "The 75 riders on the team rode together and competed together. We had the largest team and raised half a million dollars for Humber River Hospital!"
With the help of family and friends, Team Revolution has raised $1.7 million to help equip the hospital, which opened on October 18, 2015. The hospital, which is located in northwest Toronto, uses the most advanced digital technology available to revolutionize the way patient care is delivered to nearly one million residents of Toronto and the GTA.
The riders of the Granfondo Terracina paid their own expenses for the trip; 100% of funds raised go straight to the Humber River Hospital.
This was the second time Paul rode through the mountains of Italy to benefit the Humber River Hospital; his first time was in 2014. This time Paul was the top fundraiser and part of the top team of fundraisers. He said, "This was an amazing experience for a great cause. We raised half a million dollars for a community that really needs the extra help and a boost and we couldn't be happier...thank you, thank you, thank you!"
Raymond James Ltd. supports the team through a sponsorship and many people from the firm donated. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped support an amazing cause.
Please join us in congratulating Paul, Carley's Angels and Team Revolution!
