On Saturday, May 3, 2014 the Princess of Wales' Own Regiment (PWOR) will conduct its successful “PWOR March for the March of Dimes”. The March is a fundraising event in support of March of Dimes’ programs and services for children and adults with disabilities. This is the 20th year of the March.
"This event has a long history with the PWOR, having first been conducted in 1992. Since then the annual PWOR March for the March of Dimes has been able to raise approximately $155,000 to benefit children and adults with physical disabilities in the Kingston area and throughout Ontario," says Major Jeremy Pressnell, Deputy Commanding Officer, Princess of Wales' Own Regiment.
The “PWOR March for the March of Dimes” is a relaxed march in formed ranks wearing CADPAT uniform through the streets of Kingston, and involves a number of units participating voluntarily from Canadian Forces Base Kingston and local cadets. Money is raised through charitable donations collected as pledges by participants.
"It is a way for the soldiers of the Princess of Wales' Own Regiment, to contribute to the community at large," says Major Pressnell.
The March will start at 8am at the Armoury. The event is sponsored by the Kingston Whig-Standard. For more information please e-mail Sandra Clements at firstname.lastname@example.org.
