Trevor Harrington, Senior Project Manager and long-time employee at Graham Construction, has worked with the company for over 17 years. The father of four young kids enjoys all forms of biking, camping, hunting and fly-fishing with his family. Not only is he a busy, hard-working father, but in his spare time, he is an academic, working on his Ph.D. in Engineering.
Trevor and the Graham Construction team has participated in the Enbridge Tour Alberta for Cancer for the past five years. And have raised over $137,000 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. “I look forward to it every year, and it’s been a pleasure to be a part of the committee,” says Trevor. Trevor Tours in honour of his late grandfather, who he was very close to. He also Tours for his father, who is currently diagnosed with Leukemia.
“He is doing well, but only because of the continuing care of the Cross Cancer Institute,” says Trevor. “I also tour for my kids so that hopefully they will have a cancer-free future.”
Trevor, who has been working with Enbridge on construction projects for the past ten years, sees the Tour as a great way to show their support, team building and raising money for a great cause. He also enjoys biking, which helps him put on the miles.
On August 28th, Trevor will be camping with his family in Jasper and plans on cycling the 100km Maligne Lake Road. “It will be an epic ride….especially on the way back down the mountain [and yes,] I will be packing bear spray,” says Trevor.
Trevor is excited to be a part of this year’s re-branded event and playing a role in all the hard work done by the Alberta Cancer Foundation, the committee, and all of the participating teams. “The past year has been hard for the event, and I look forward to building momentum this year and growing our team and fundraising efforts,” says Trevor.
