Pillar To Post: Police Unity Tour Challenge Ride
This May, Pillar To Post Colorado Franchisee Rod Goshorn will be cycling in his fourth Police Unity Tour, which goes from Somerset NJ to Washington D.C. nearly 300 miles, over three days. The primary purpose of the Police Unity tour is to raise awareness of the Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the Line of Duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial in Washington D.C.
“It means the world to me to be able to honor the memories of those Officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for their communities. Although we ride in memory of all the Officers who have died, each year we dedicate our ride to an individual Officer, this year I am dedicating my ride to fallen hero, Adams County Sheriff’s Deputy Heath Gumm, who was killed in the line of duty on Jan. 24, 2018, responding to a report of an assault,” said Goshorn.

FirstService: Walk With Us to Support MS Research
We invite you to join us in our efforts to support the MS Society of Canada. Multiple sclerosis can strike anyone at any moment, and Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world. On average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable disease every day. We don’t know what causes MS, and we don’t have a cure. Yet.
We’re participating in MS Walk because we want to support our friends, family members, neighbours and co-workers who are affected by MS.
Join our team as we challenge MS and help empower more people affected by the disease to live their best lives. This is a day for the community of Toronto to come together and support a great cause with one goal in mind, to end MS! Donations will support our friends and families in Toronto living with Multiple Sclerosis and by continuing to support the best MS research in the world taking place right here in Canada.
If you are unable to join us at MS Walk, donate to our team’s fundraising today. Your donation will help continue to fund leading-edge research and support programs that improve the quality of life for people affected by MS.

California Closets: Join us for the Friends of Oakland Animal Services Half Marathon
The Friends of Oakland Animal Services, a nonprofit fundraising arm of the Oakland Animal Services Shelter, has formed a running team and will be running the Oakland Half Marathon, raising much needed funds and awareness for the shelter. OAS is Oakland’s only open-admission shelter, and they do so much to help homeless, sick, and injured animals the San Francisco Bay Area!
Morgan McGuire is a huge animal lover, and, since she can’t personally rescue all of the homeless animals, she tries to help in other ways. She has volunteered for OAS since 2015, and has been a runner for a long time, so, when they announced this fundraising event, she had to say yes.
The team has collectively already raised more than $8,000, and they are hoping to raise at least $12,000. The money raised will help support the municipal shelter’s efforts to better care for thousands of animals each year in the face of Oakland’s ongoing budgetary challenges. Donations of any amount are incredibly welcome and appreciated.
