The Military Police National Motorcycle Relay (MPNMR) will hit Ontario roadways again this summer to raise funds for visually impaired children across Canada.
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. Since its inception in 2009, the Relay has raised more than $480 000 on behalf of the Military Police Fund for Blind Children and other charities.
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 for a day, a province or from coast to coast. The 2017 Relay will begin on July 30 in Victoria, British Columbia, end on August 23 in St. John’s, Newfoundland. About 300 riders participate in the Relay each year.
All fundraising efforts of the 2017 Military Police National Motorcycle Relay will be directed to our flagship charity, the Military Police Fund for Blind Children.
The Military Police Fund for Blind Children was founded in 1957 and specializes in assisting visually impaired children up to the age of 21. The fund is operated entirely by Military Police volunteers and has no paid employees. All funds raised are used to benefit visually impaired children.
The relay is open to all motorcycle enthusiasts holding a current motorcycle endorsement on their provincial license. All brands of motorcycle or three wheeler (Trike or Spyder) are welcome.
