Registration is now open for Wounded Warriors Canada’s first annual Highway of Heroes Bike Ride. With only 200 spots available for this unprecedented ride, bicycle enthusiasts and military supporters are encouraged to sign up before it’s too late.
Registration opened on Monday April 18.
“Yesterday was a very proud day for Wounded Warriors Canada having launched our first domestic cycling event, Highway of Heroes Bike Ride. Picking up on the success of the Battlefield Bike Rides, which will take us through Italy this June,” said Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC).
The ride will be a two-day event starting on Sept. 24 at the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial in Trenton, Ontario. Participants will ride along the Highway of Heroes in remembrance of the fallen heroes of Canada while raising funds and awareness for the ill and injured members of the CAF, veterans, first responders and their families.
“Nothing we do speaks better to the guiding principles of our charity: ‘honour the fallen, help the living,’ than our bike rides because for a number of months participants are raising awareness and funds to help the living, those living with operation stress industries like PTSD. And during the ride we pay our respect and honour the fallen and remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. So, these cycling events, we’ve come to host, truly embody our charity,” stated Maxwell.
More than fifty participants have already signed up for the bike ride in a little more than 24 hour since registration opened.
“You can imagine that we’re confident we’re going to get our 200. So, I would just encourage anyone interested in doing this ride in September to not wait long to register,” added Maxwell.
