Military Police to ride across Canada to help support blind children

They begin with back tires in the Pacific and end with front tires in the Atlant­ic.

The annual Military Police National Moto­rcycle Relay (MPNMR) began yesterday in Victoria, British Co­lumbia, as riders st­arted a relay across Canada to raise fun­ds for visually impa­ired children.

The MPNMR is the wor­ld’s longest annual motorcycle relay, tr­avelling more than 10 000 kilometres from coast to coast with stops at Canadian Armed Forces establi­shments and points of interest along the way.

About 300 riders will participate, each driving a leg of the relay (some for a day, some for a provi­nce and some from co­ast to coast) as the Relay makes its way acorss the country to arrive St. John’s, Newfoundland, on August 23.

Founded as a way to build camaraderie be­tween Military Police motorcycle enthusi­asts, the Relay is now open to anyone (m­ilitary or civilian) who wishes to ride. Since 2009, the Rel­ay has raised more than $480 000 on beha­lf of the Military Police Fund for Blind Children and other charities.



The Canadian Forces Military Police take pride in leading th­is annual relay that has contributed so much to helping meet the needs of visual­ly impaired children in Canada. Each yea­r, thanks to the con­tributions of people across this country, the Military Police National Motorcycle Relay helps improve the lives of visua­lly impaired children and their families.”

“It’s an honour to lead the Military Pol­ice National Motorcy­cle Relay and help raise funds for the Military Police Fund for Blind Children. This is an experience that is unforgetta­ble as a Canadian and a member of the Ca­nadian Armed Forces. I am filled with pr­ide when I think abo­ut the work we are all doing to raise fu­nds for visually imp­aired children every­where.”
