The Canadian Army Veterans (CAV) – Sicily Motorcycle Unit will be holding the third annual Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Highway 43 Memorial Ride on July 5th, 2014.
The ride will honour our Veterans, and in collaboration with The Royal Canadian Legion – Ontario Command, will raise funds for Operation: Leave the Streets Behind for the ‘Homeless Veterans Assistance Fund’.
The fund provides financial assistance for Ontario Veterans to obtain housing, furniture, food and medical care during their time of need.
All riders are welcome to the ride and the $20 registration per rider and $10 per passenger includes the poker run and complimentary snacks along the route.
Breakfast and the barbecue at the end of the ride are provided by the Royal Canadian Legion Branches for a minimal fee.
The ride starts at The Royal Canadian Legion Branch in Perth and follows the Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Highway 43 to Alexandria, stopping at several Royal Canadian Legion Branches for presentations.
It concludes at The Royal Canadian Legion Branch in Morrisburg, with a barbecue, announcement of the poker run prizes and distribution of door prizes. All proceeds of the ride including all cash donations go directly to the ‘Homeless Veterans Assistance Fund’. Breakfast and registration starts at 8:30 a.m. and kickstands up at 9:30 a.m.
Last year, a total of $19,160 was raised from the ride, the coin collections and more importantly due to the generous support of the community. Local merchants, charities and companies have been very supportive by contributing donations, goods and services annually to this event.
