Mike Brown, who was a highly esteemed member of our KÀ team, passed away after fighting a long and courageous battle against cancer. Throughout the course of 2012, members of the KÀ team organized two events in his honour to provide financial support for the family of their beloved friend and colleague. For the first event held in May, Bike for Mike, several motorcyclists raised money by driving 100 miles (161 kilometres) in just a few hours in the Las Vegas area. Then in June, the KÀ team organized a lottery draw with a range of exciting prizes on offer, such as Cirque du Soleil show tickets. These events helped members of the KÀ team to raise the impressive sum of $25,000. The funds have been given to Mike Brown’s wife to help with their children’s education.
