Chances are good that you, or someone you know and love, have had an incident in which you owed a thank-you to a paramedic. The daily, selfless acts of these highly trained and skilled individuals have saved countless lives throughout the years. Sadly, by putting their own lives at risk, many of these great people did not make it home after their shift.
The Paramedic Ride is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the paramedic community. They are raising funds in support of the Canadian Paramedic Memorial Foundation which is constructing a monument in 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 to honour the dedication and sacrifice of all Canadian paramedics.
In 2018 The Paramedic Ride has five rides scheduled throughout Canada:
British Columbia – June 7-10
New Brunswick – June 23-24
Alberta- August 24-26
Quebec – Sept. 14-17
Ontario – Sept 14-17
Donations can be made by anyone who visits the website www.paramedicride.ca where you can donate to a specific ride or rider.
If you would like a tax receipt for your donation, please donate directly to www.canadianparamedicmemorialfoundation.ca in honour of the ride you are supporting.
