The Bob Probert Memorial Ride, honours the memory of Bob Probert.
Now in it’s 10th year the Ride has raised over $1 Million to support Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare’s creation of a second angioplasty suite, the new wellness exercise room used by their Cardiac Wellness patients and 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, Dave Hutchison, WRIF Radio Personality Meltdown, Scott Parker, Zack Kassian and Darren ‘Bruiser’ Banks.
Probert tragically passed away while boating of a heart attack in 2010. He was a Harley Davidson Motorcycle enthusiast. Fans best remember him as The Enforcer #24 in the NHL.
