Raising Funds For Veterans


Canadian Pacific has a very long history with the military and as a way of giving back they are banding together to raise awareness and money for Homes For Heroes, an initiative that addresses the issue of veterans experiencing homelessness in Canada.

CP employees, Servicemen/women and Corporate Teams will be spinning for 24 hours to raise awareness and funds for the Homes For Heroes Foundation to assist them in helping those who were willing to give their all to protect us and maintain our freedoms, get back to a place where they feel supported and engaged.

Homes For Heroes “Spin For A Veteran” event’s goal is to raise $100,000 which will pay for a 250 sq ft home in the village.

  • Teams will be competing against each other over a 24 hour period in order to raise as much money as possible.
  • Trophies and prizes will be awarded to the team that:
    • Raises the most funds
    • Covers the most distance during the 24 hours

Come support our riders!
