"The Acuity Brands “Finish the Ride” event is a wonderful example of the Acuity family coming together to raise awareness of heart disease in the hopes of preventing another tragedy like the one that struck my family. The annual event honors the life of my late husband Seth and promotes healthy living through exercise—his true passion. I’m proud to be part of a company that has such caring and compassionate employees, and I hope the event inspires others to get outside, get healthy and most importantly, understand the dangers and warning signs of heart disease."

- Linda Owen
