This summer, three ex-cadets, 10932 Henry D’Auchapt (class of ’76), 16107 Mike Loader (class of ’87), and 21982 Adrian Rawle (class of ’02), participated in the 20th annual Friends For Life Bike Rally(F4LBR) in support of People With AIDS (PWA).
The F4LBR is a 600km ride from Toronto to Montreal, completed over six days.  Riders raise money in support of PWA, which is a Toronto-based charity that provides a variety of supports for people living with HIV and AIDS.  This year’s F4LBR consisted of about 250 six-day riders.  We started in Nathan-Phillips Square in Toronto and, six days later, rode into downtown Montreal, arriving at Place Émilie Gamelin.  We sleep in tents along the route (the tents are carried in trucks) and meals are catered.  It is a great deal of fun as well as an enjoyable physical challenge, and it’s a great cause.
This was my second year riding, and it was a great pleasure to meet two other ex-cadets on the ride.  I did not know there were other RMC grads on the ride and we only identified each other by coincidence.
I plan to do the ride again next year, and would enjoy the company of anyone else who is interested.  It’s a great experience.  Feel free to get in touch if you’d like more information.

    Support Wounded Warriors Canada.
    6 June, 2019 will mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day; the Allied Operation OverLord. I’ve decided to head to France and join a team of Canadians who will cycle nearly 600kms in 6 days from Dieppe, the site of the ill-fated Operation Jubilee in 1942, to Juno Beach, where the Canadians went ashore as part of the 6 June 1944, D-Day invasion of Normandy.
    We will be riding to honour the fallen while raising funds to support the mental health programs Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC) makes possible for ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans, First Responders and their families. I am an ex-cadet of RMC Class of 1974 and a veteran of the Canadian Army. My father and both grandfathers were also veterans. One of my grandfathers fought in World War I at Vimy Ridge, Passchendaele and other battles with the Canadian Corps. While never physically injured, he suffered the effects of what is now known as PTSD. This disorder led to his death during World War II. PTSD and other related mental health problems are a much too common affliction for veterans and first responders alike. Even the families of those with PTSD suffer immense hardship.
    For more information on the ride and WWC, please visit: https://woundedwarriors.ca/bbr19/#
    I am asking for your help to reach a very important goal. I am better than half way to my minimum required goal of $4,000, of which I have contributed the initial $500. However, I have set a target goal of $10,000. You can help me reach this goal and help so many of our fellow Canadians by making a donation. To make a donation, please visit: https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?EventID=243872&LangPref=en-CA&Referrer=https%3a%2f%2fsecure.e2rm.com%2fregistrant%2fsearch.aspx%3fEID%3d243872&RegistrationID=4253905#&panel1-1
    Our serving members of the Canadian Forces, our veterans and our first responders and their families need your help. Please share this with your friends and family. Thank you!
    Honour the Fallen, Help the Living
