Ride for a Cure revs up more than $10,000
for Leukemia Research

On August 7, 2010, motorcycle enthusiasts roared onto the roads in Peel Region to raise $10,661 in the 6th Annual Ride for a Cure, bringing the six-year total to $70, 829.

This year’s 43 participants and volunteers came from all over southern Ontario including Keswick, Arthur, Burlington and Guelph. The motorcycle clubs and groups that participated included Northern Stars, Guelph Red Chevron Club and members of UFCW Local 175, including President Shawn Haggerty, and Local 1000A. Riders took in local attractions such as Terra Cotta, Cheltenham Badlands, the Forks of the Credit and many other points of interest on the winding roads of Peel Region.

The Ride for a Cure committee gives special thanks to the Peel Regional Police Officers who joined us again this year for a safe trip.
