Saturday September 10th on Manitoulin Island.

On November 19th, 2020, Ontario Provincial Police Constable, Marc Hovingh died protecting and serving the communities of Manitoulin Island.

In 2021 was the first Memorial Bicycle Ride to remember Marc’s life. This year, in 2022, you are invited to come and be involved in The Marc Hovingh Memorial Ride, Run or Walk. 

The Ontario Provincial Police has again partnered with the Hovingh family and the Manitoulin Island communities to memorialize Marc’s life and his unwavering service to his community and the Province of Ontario. Marc was committed to his family and his community through his work, his church and his desire to help those in need.

In the spirit of how Marc lived his life, this event will be raising awareness and funds for the Ontario Provincial Police Youth Foundation, an organization that mirrors what Marc’s life displayed, providing those in need of assistance.

You can ride your bike, run or walk to raise awareness and funds. There are various distances to choose from, so pick the one that will challenge you and show your support.

You can purchase a riding jersey or running shirt for the event. ***The store will only be open until Friday, August 19th, to guarantee delivery before the event*** Link to store.
