9th Annual Bob Probert Memorial Ride
On June 23, 2019, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare hosted the Bob Probert Ride, a motorcycle poker run in support of Cardiac Services in Windsor-Essex. From 2011-2018, the Ride has raised nearly $1M to support the creation of a second angioplasty suite, the new wellness exercise room used by our Cardiac Wellness patients and now a satellite location that will make access to the exercise room easier for patients in the county.
The selected satellite location will be part of the new expansion of the existing Tecumseh Arena that will include indoor sports fields, offices and activity rooms. The location in Tecumseh allows convenient access to the program in a catchment area which includes east Windsor, the town of Tecumseh, and Lakeshore. The new facility is going to have a walking track and other amenities that will be complementary to the cardiac wellness program.
Each year the ride is lead by a celebrity road captain the likes of Chris Chelios, Sheldon Kennedy, Jacqui MacInnis-Wood, Tony Amonte, Ryan VandenBussche, Darren McCarty and Dave Hutchison, Scott Parker and WRIF's Meltdown. This year's captains included Scott Parker and Meltdown. For more details on the ride please like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ProbertRide.
