A team of Paramedics from Halton are again participating in the 2019 Tour Paramedic Rides from Hamilton to Toronto on September 12, then from Toronto to Ottawa on September 13-16, where they will meet up with the riders from Quebec to ride into the nations Capital. The goal is to raise funds to build a national monument honouring both civilian and military paramedics lost in the line of duty.
This year to spread awareness and rally support, Halton Paramedics are hosting a concert night on Saturday, June 29 through local organizer Acoustic Blend Cafe in the Milton Legion Hall located at 21 Charles Street in Milton. The night is opened at 8pm by Halton Paramedic’s own country-folk singer-songwriter Greg Spenser, then features local rock band Beggars by Choice. Tickets are only $15 each and all ticket proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Paramedic Memorial Foundation. The cyclists individually fund their own participation, so to help out the riders we’ll have some donated prizes and baskets to be raffled off.
