Kickstands up for the Military Police National Motorcycle Relay (MPNMR) will be on 31 July 2016 in Victoria, British Columbia.
The MPNMR will travel across Canada, raising funds for the Military Police Fund for Blind Children (MPFBC). The final destination is Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador on 22 August 2016.
The planning committee is still looking for national riders to take part in the relay and expects there will be great support and fundraising efforts on each leg of the coast-to-coast journey. Each year, hundreds of people across the country ride in the relay, volunteer to make the MPNMR a shining success and raise funds, which all go to visually impaired children.
The MPNMR was founded in 2009 as a way to build comradery between Military Police motorcycle enthusiasts. It has grown to become a great supporter of charities such as the MPFBC. No longer limited to Military Police personnel, the MPNMR is now open to anyone (military or civilian) who wishes to join for a day, a province or the entire national relay.
