On a sunny Saturday, 36 bikers took over the road – for a good cause. For the 7th year in a row, members and staff rode their motorcycles from the Local 1000A office in Woodbridge to the Local 175 head office in Mississauga.
Participants were lucky to have sunny skies and warm weather for the August 20th trek. The ride and poker run raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). Riders gathered pledges before the event, for a total of over $15,200 raised. John Sawyer led the group with the most pledges collected, followed by Roy Reed. There were prizes for the best and worst poker hands awarded to Chris Wishnousky for the best and Steve Robinson for the worst. There were also Show ‘n Shine prizes:

1st Place – Rick Slaught, 2nd Place – John Wheeler & 3rd Place – Karl Siroky

Participants enjoyed a delicious BBQ following the ride and a raffle with a variety of great prizes. The money raised during this year’s event managed to exceed last year’s impressive total. For more information about LLSC, visit:
