A nationwide motorcycle relay made its way to the mid Island last month, then motored through to the next stop.
Riders from the Military Police National Motorcycle Relay, which raises money for the Military Police Fund for Blind Children, stopped by Royal Canadian Legion Branch 256’s Mount Benson hall on East Wellington Road on July 26, noted a legion press release.
Following the Nanaimo stop, the motorcade proceeded on to Lantzville and then up the highway to Campbell River where it made an overnight stop.
The Military Police National Motorcycle Relay is the world’s longest annual motorcycle relay, travelling over 10,000 kilometers from coast to coast with stops at Canadian Armed Forces establishments and points of interest along the way, the press release said.
The Mt. Benson legion presented $500 toward the relay’s fundraising effort.
