Raising Funds For Veterans
In 2017, the first ever Spin for a Veteran event raised over $74,000!
In 2018 we raised $216,804 and with your support we are hoping to surpass that amount this year.
Spin For A Veteran’s event’s goal for 2019 is to raise awareness and $400,000 for the Homes For Heroes Foundation.
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.
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:
1. Raises the most funds
2. Covers the most distance during the 24 hours
Come support our riders!
