2005 Ride for a Cure raises $4,225 for LLSC

Event | Route | Sponsors | Volunteers


It may have been a drizzly Sunday, but spirits were high for our First Annual Charity Motorcycle Ride held on Sunday, August 14th, 2005 in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).

"I want to thank the riders and sponsors for their participation and contributions," said Local 175 President Wayne Hanley, who also participated in the event.

The ride raised $4,225 for Leukemia research and saw a variety of motorcycles, from Scooters to Harleys. Starting from the Locals 175 & 633 Mississauga office, the riders wound their way through the back roads of Halton and Peel Regions and featured a tour along the Forks of the Credit, just south of Orangeville.

"This was a fantastic day. It exceeded my expectations," said Richard McNaughton, President of UFCW Local 333, one of the many ride sponsors. "Count me and my friends in for next year."

For their generous support, each rider received an official ride t-shirt, a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of many prizes and an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet upon their return from the ride.
