Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
North American Van Lines Inc., one of the world’s largest moving companies, announced their support of the third annual “North American Moving Services Tour de Force” which will take place September 17 - September 23, 2012. Money raised will go to the Canada Company Scholarship Fund and Camps for Kids of Deployed Canadian Forces Personnel, which directly benefits Canadian Military families.
The route will start at the Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto, down the Waterfront Trail to Kingston. The riders will then head north through Perth and finish at Parliament Hill in Ottawa. The six-day, 600 km event will include daily visits to Canadian Forces bases along the route. In addition, each stop will host a community celebration with local celebrities and give riders once-in-a-lifetime activities with Canadian military personnel. The 50 cyclists participating will also be part of the annual Army Run being held on September 23rd on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
“Every rider, every mile and every dollar raised for this great event helps to support the military children whose parents have selflessly dedicated their lives to protect ours,” said Dan Robertson, vice president and general manager of North American Van Lines. “We have seen the life-changing effect this powerful event has made not only on military families, but with us and we are excited to once again be part of it.”
Limited sponsorship opportunities are available that range from $500 to $5,000. In addition, each of the fifty participating riders will be able to accept financial sponsorship for their ride. In the two years of hosting this event, more than $200,000 has been raised for charity.
