Good works pay off

In the very early morning of April 5, somewhere around 2 a.m., a group of exhausted Ontario Power Generation employees will finish the Breath of Hope Relay at Toronto’s SkyDome.

They’ll be among the more than 1,200 people expected to complete the seven-hour relay run, where at least one team member will be on the track at all times, to raise money to help people with lung disease.

Corporate volunteering initiatives like this have become more popular in recent years as companies look to build stronger bonds within the communities they operate.
