7th Annual Pedal for the Past raises $18.4K for OPP Museum
Friends of the OPP Museum, a non-profit organization that supports and promotes the museum, hosted its 2017 Pedal for the Past event on September 30, 2017, in Midland, Ont. at Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons historic site.
Serving officers, retired ones and friends and family took to their bikes (and their feet!) for a 100 km, 50 km or 25 km ride to raise money for the museum in Orillia, Ont. The 62 participants raised $18,400.
The museum preserves, documents and interprets artifacts and archival materials that help to build an understanding of the history of policing in Ontario since the formation of Upper Canada in 1791, specializing in the material culture of the Ontario Provincial Police from 1909.
