The Honour Ride: September 10, 2016
THE HONOUR RIDE: Five years and growing...
Police, Peace Officers, EMS, Firefighters and Military face unique situations that many of us cannot even imagine. Shiftwork, deployment, high-risk incidents and seeing what fire, accidents and violence do to the victims in their care can take a toll...and sometimes, place these professionals at higher risk for stress, family breakdown, PTSD and other related challenges.
The Blue Knights AB V HONOUR RIDE is an annual, public, poker ride fundraiser that supports selected local non-profit charities that provide quality assistance programs to our community heroes...when a little help is needed.
Last year, the HONOUR RIDE raised $7,437 for our charities. This year, our goal is $10,000
Let's work together to MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Even if you aren't sure if you will be working or in town on September 10th, please consider registering online now. Your registration fee of $27.50 will help us raise our goal of $10,000 for these worthwhile charities.
