Lumentum Raises Record Amount for Reach in Tech Challenge

For the fourth year in a row, Reach has partnered with Lumentum in the annual Tech Challenge. Previously organized as part of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, Lumentum staff create teams and engage in fundraising activities such as catered dinners, online trivia nights, and chess tournaments. Last year, $15,200 was raised through this event. This year, contributions through Lumentum totaled $18,776.

Lumentum has been a major supporter of the Run for Reach and Reach’s participation in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at Ottawa Race Weekend for over 20 years. The continued support of Lumentum has provided necessary funding to ensure Reach’s programs are available to people with disabilities in the community. Reach cannot thank Lumentum enough for the continued support in this critical time.

Special thanks to the top fundraising team, LITE Speed, and top overall fundraising/winner of Reach's Grand Prize, Jason Bletcha!
