A group of our own paramedic members took part in the annual ride. In past years the ride was a province wide event where numerous paramedics and their support volunteers participated in the south as a group. With the worldwide pandemic those plans couldn't be realized however this did not stop the tenacity and spirit of local 4705 members from moving (or pedaling) forward. No way not our members!
The Paramedic Ride is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the Paramedic community. We are raising funds in support of the Canadian Paramedic Memorial Foundation. The foundation is constructing a monument in the Nations’ Capital – Ottawa, Ontario to commemorate those Paramedics who have lost their lives in the line-of-duty. This important monument will be a place where family, friends and colleagues can remember their loved ones and honour the dedication and sacrifice of all Canadian Paramedics who have lost their lives. We hope you can join us in 2021 and experience the journey with us.
The 95 kilometer ride started on Sunday Septmeber 12. Donations being accepted by visiting the following this link.
