At LPI we like to make a difference in the communities we live in and serve. LPI partners and associates are active as volunteers in their communities – Coaching and Sponsoring Local Teams, Serving their Strata Councils, Volunteering in Municipal Elections and at their Churches, Schools and Daycares. Andrew Tablotney, an avid sports fan, has coached many winning Baseball teams over the years and has served on the Executive Committee of Minor League Baseball as well. His wife and company accountant, Debbie Tablotney, is a Richmond School Board Trustee, an active Rotary Club member and has served as the Treasurer and Board Member of the Boy Scouts. LPI is also an ongoing sponsor of Operation Red Nose and Dry Grad and actively sponsors speakers in our schools from the ICBC Road Safety Program for Young Drivers. Take a look at some of the organizations and causes we support and if there is some way we can help your community give Andrew a call – he’ll be happy to talk to you!

Organ Donation

Over 1,600 Canadians are added to organ wait lists yearly. Every year too many people die while waiting on that list. A 90% majority of Canadians support organ and tissue donation but less than 20% have made their pledge. One donor can benefit more than 75 people and save up to 8 lives. You can help save lives too by registering with BC Transplant on the 1 page registration form at the following link: Organ Donor Registration

My family and LeGear-Pelling Insurance have been fundraising for the Ride to conquer for the past 7 years. It started when my mother, Debbie, joined the ride as a way to honor her late sister Jackie Sinnerud who lost her battle to cancer in 2010. Since then she has ridden close to 1500km through windstorms, smoke and rain and has raised over $20,000.00 for the BC Cancer Foundation. Each rider is required to raise $2500 each time to compete in the ride.
Andrew has volunteered as a member of the support crew for the past 4 years fixing flats and rescuing wounded riders.
I finished my first ride last year biking through two grueling days of heavy rain out in the valley. We would have never found this great cause to fundraise without the support of our team the “Brainiacs”.
The Brianiacs were founded in 2009 in BC by 4 Brain Cancer survivors. At the time two were stage 4 and yet 9 years later 3 still ride as a testament to what can be accomplished. What started off as a team of 8 riders has grown to a team last year of over 370 riders that has raised over $2.5 million dollars for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The ride as a whole has raised over $82 million since it started 10 years ago.
Please consider supporting me and “the Ride”. We will be doing training rides and generating awareness for critical cancer research for the BC Cancer Foundation, a world leader in cancer research and care.
The Ride is an epic, two-day cycling event taking place August 24-25, 2019 and spanning over 200 kilometers! Currently the Brainiacs have 213 riders registered this year.
