Gallery: Ryerson Engineers complete annual Bug Push

Ryerson’s engineering students survived yet another grueling 24 hours of pushing a Volkswagen Bug around Ryerson’s quad — using only their hands.

The annual charity event raised money for the Terry Fox Foundation this year. In previous years, donations were made to the Sick Kids Foundation.

Student Adam Cote participated in the event for the fourth year in a row. He said he has a lot of fun with it and has dedicated a lot of his time to the event over the years.

“Two years ago I was here for about 14 hours,” Cote said. “I wasn’t pushing the whole time but I was at the school for that amount of time. I think the longest continuous I’ve done is probably about an hour and a half, two hours.”

Engineering student John Frankum said they raised around $1,900 for the Terry Fox Foundation, and $1,000 of that was donated by Ryerson’s president Sheldon Levy. Donations are still being accepted at the Ryerson Engineering Student Society office and online here.
