Today is United Way Day in Hamilton and Burlington.
The local United Way has kicked off its workplace fundraising campaign, highlighted by a bus pull at McMaster University and a tricycle race at Hamilton Health Sciences.
This year’s campaign is also asking residents to “Strive for 5” by donating 5 per cent more money or volunteer for 5 more hours of community service.
This year’s fundraising goal is 6.5 million dollars.
Just over 6.2-million was donated last year.
