Viessmann Canada's 2018 Ride for Comfort raises over $25,000 for STARS Air Ambulance
Viessmann Canada is very pleased to announce that our 2018 Ride for Comfort charity motorcycle ride was a tremendous success, raising over $25,000 in support of STARS Air Ambulance of Calgary, Alberta.
While Viessmann is engaged in the business of home heating comfort, the term comfort can take on many different aspects of life, such as knowing that help is on the way in the fastest way possible.
