GardaWorld proud partner of Canada’s 911 Atlantic Ride
Motorcycle engines were roaring loudly on June 8-9 in Cap Breton Island, Nova Scotia for the fifth Atlantic edition of Canada's 911 Ride.
The event featured an impressive police-escorted motorcycle ride and raises funds for a variety of causes, including helping families of fallen emergency service personnel; helping children who are the victims of violent crimes; and providing public access to defibrillators to help save lives. The ride has many facets. It brings police officers and emergency responders from the Atlantic provinces together in one place, where lasting relationships are made. The ride travels through many communities, where ride participants mingle with the public at planned community greeting points. This event has become something to look forward to each year.
GardaWorld chose to establish a lasting partnership to support the cause with financial donations and the involvement of Darrell Coffin, Regional Vice President, Cash Services, Atlantic Canada. Several vice presidents from GardaWorld were also present to take part in the event, including Rob Murray, National Vice President, Sales & Business Development, Cash Services and Bernard Carrier, Vice President, Operations, Cash Services, Quebec Region.
Darrell Coffin, emphasized that, "This ride shows our appreciation to our living heroes, who continue to serve us every day. Our men and women in policing, paramedics and fire services place their lives in danger every time they respond to a call."
We would like to thank the GardaWorld employees who contributed to making the event a great success, alongside Darrell. He is enthusiastic with the results: "We have been flooded with emails and texts on how great a weekend it was from our riders and members of the public!"
Canada’s 911 Ride is an annual fundraising event that began in Ontario in 2005, and has, in recent years, expanded to include an Atlantic ride. Darrell and his team are always looking for ways to enhance this event and has developed a Facebook page that continually posts about past rides, ongoing emergency responder activities, and upcoming happenings. For more information, visit the Canada’s 911 Ride website or Facebook page or get a glimpse of the event on YouTube.
The date has already been set: the 6th edition of Canada's 911 Ride in the Atlantic will be held in Prince Edwards Island, June 13-14, 2020.
