Lasik Cataract Center was a proud sponsor of this year’s Paramedic Ride in Ontario from September 13th - 16th of 2019.

Bravery and Sacrifice of First Responders Honoured

Our dedicated Canadian Paramedics are focused on community safety and can face difficult and dangerous situations during emergency situations. Tragically at times they may serve the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives and we wish to thank them for this brave act.

The Paramedic Ride was all about honouring them, raising funds, awareness and creating a memorial to gather and share.

National Monument honouring Canadian Civilian and Military Paramedics

The funds raised from the Paramedic Ride will go towards a national monument in Ottawa to honour the dedication and sacrifice of all Canadian Civilian and Military Paramedics who have lost their lives in the line-of-duty. It will be a gathering place for family, friends and colleagues to mourn, remember and commune in memory of their loved ones.

As a sponsor for this event, we are contributing to build a national monument in our nation’s capital for all Canadians to see. This beautiful and lasting project is being fore-fronted by the Canadian Paramedic Memorial Foundation.

Annual Cycling Ride Continues to Raise Funds

Founded in 2012, this yearly cycling event raises funds and awareness for those who have lost their lives in the line of duty as well as supporting mental health initiatives to break down the stigma of first responder mental health.
