Bob Probert Ride hits the $1 million mark

The annual Bob Probert Ride took place on Sunday in Windsor, Ontario, and the Blackburn News’s Adelle Loiselle reports that the charitable endeavor surpassed a significant financial marker:

A popular event that helps cardiac patients in Windsor-Essex get the treatment they need close to home has raised more than $1-million.

The Bob Probert Ride has brought more than 1,300 motorcycle enthusiasts from across Canada and the U.S. together every year for almost a decade. The ninth-annual event hit the milestone this year.

“From our contribution to the angioplasty suite, to exercise equipment at the cardiac wellness gym, and now towards the establishment of a satellite cardiac wellness program in Tecumseh, we are making a huge difference right here in our community,” said Dani Probert, the widow of former NHL player Bob Probert.

The expansion to Tecumseh will allow patients to take part in a six-month program close to their home.
