Imagine over 100 motorcycles thundering down the highway with a police escort. The annual 911 Ride hosted by Canada’s 911 Foundation, is a police escorted charity motorcycle ride to raise funds and awareness for causes including helping the families of fallen emergency service personal, helping children who were victims of violent crime, as well as working with The Mikey Network to make MIKEYs (public access defibrillators) more readily available to help save lives.
Along the route of this year’s ride, The Mikey Network placed four MIKEYs in Peterborough, Barrie, Bradford, and Stouffville.
Through the 7th Annual 911 Ride, Canada’s 911 Foundation raised $20,000 for The Mikey Network to help us place our MIKEYs in more public places. Over the last six years Canada’s 911 Foundation has been one of our strongest proponents and we are grateful for their support.
