At 10:30 am on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2008, at RCMP "K" Division Headquarters located at 11140-109 St. Edmonton, Executive Committee members of Edmonton’s Motorcycle Ride For Dad will be announcing the final total of funds raised in the 2008 Motorcycle Ride For Dad, which took place on June 14, 2008.
The Motorcycle Ride for Dad, Canada’s biggest motorcycle event in support of the fight against Prostate Cancer, has raised millions of dollars to fund research, education, and awareness about this disease. While the Ride first started in Ottawa in 2000 and has since grown to seventeen Rides in major cities across Canada, 2008 marked the second anniversary of the Ride in Edmonton. In true Edmonton fashion, the amount of funds raised here in 2008 was the second largest out of all the Rides! All funds pledged in Edmonton, stay in Edmonton.
Please join us, along with leaders within our community, on Tuesday as we present our cheque (which will be in the low to mid SIX figures) representing all of the funds pledged and raised by the riders that participated in the 2008 Edmonton Motorcycle Ride For Dad. We will also be honouring those riders that raised the most funds individually towards this cause.
