Windsorite.ca’s Liz Thome reports that the annual Bob Probert Ride to benefit Windsor’s Hotel Dieu-Grace will be headed by two “road captains,” former Colorado Avalanche enforcer Scott Parker and WRIF’s Meltdown:
The 8th annual Bob Probert Ride will feature two road captains. Leading the field of over 1,200 participants will be Scott Parker a.k.a. “The Sheriff”, and WRIF’s Meltdown.
“Choosing a road captain for the Ride each year never comes easy. Having been a part of the NHL family, I am always overwhelmed by the support we receive each year from current and retired players,” explained Dani Probert. “I know Big Bob is smiling HUGE today.”
Over the last 7 years, the Ride has supported Cardiac Wellness programs in Windsor-Essex. This year’s ride is already en route to bring the 8 year ride total of monies raised to $900,000.
This year’s Ride takes palce on June 24th, and includes stops at the Fort Fun Centre, Colchester Bar and Grill, Wolfhead Distillery and returns to the final stop at the Ciociaro Club where riders and their passengers will be able to enjoy refreshments and purchase food.
