We are pleased to announce the Bradford Curling Club has been chosen, in memory of the late Superintendent Mark Grant, to receive a defibrillator as part of the Canada's 911 Ride Foundation.
Superintendent Grant was a 32 year member of the York Regional Police force and a member of the Bradford Curling Club, as a curler on Frank Badowich's Monday CYOR team , who at the age of 54 died as a result of a motor vehicle accident
The Canada 911 Ride Foundation hosts an annual police escorted motorcycle ride to raise funds and awareness of the foundations causes. These include helping families of fallen emergency services workers, helping children who have been victims of violent crimes, as well as working in conjunction with the MIKEY Network to make defibrillators more readily available to save lives.
The Canada 911 Ride Foundation will also donate a plaque in memory of Superintendent Grant to be hung beside the defibrillator.
As part of the agreement the Bradford Curling Club will be required to have several club members undergo training on the proper usage of this defibrillator.
The Bradford Curling Club would like to thank both the Canada 911 Ride Foundation and the MIKEY Network for providing this valuable equipment to our club.
