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

Money raised from the Paramedic Ride will be used to purchase a national monument in Ottawa, to honour the sacrifice and commitment of our Canadian paramedics who have lost their lives prematurely  in the line of duty. This new monument in Ottawa, will serve as a special meeting place for loved ones to gather and remember those who have fallen.

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

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