This past Saturday the County / Coxon team set their sites on Walmart in Amherstburg as the 3rd out of 4 stops on their summer series tour. It was a site to see. More of the towing powerhouses equipment was on site taking up a fair amount of the parking lot all in the name of charity.
County Towing teamed up with Windsor Polices` Amherstburg Detachment to offer there resources and Heavy Rescue 401 notoriety to raise funds for their Annual Bike Rodeo which provides children in the community free bike helmets and bicycle safety education.
Visitors to the event were given the opportunity to explore the fleet and specialized equipment and they were even given the chance to run the Rotator. The crew was on hand to take photos and autograph posters for all their fans. The event saw the launch of their first Heavy Rescue apparel line with proceeds donated to the cause. Windsor Police were also on hand with their antique cruiser and helping out on the grill as they served up BBQ`d hot dogs and cold beverages for lunch.
If you were unable to attend the event, don`t worry. The 4th and final stop on their summer series tour will be at the Harrow Fair over Labour Day weekend where the crew will be raising funds for the John Mcgivney Foundation. An organization that provides comprehensive pediatric therapy services including assessment, treatment, consultation, design and provisions of assistive devices, education and family support services to children and families in need.
In the end, the County / Coxon team was able to raise over $625.00 for the Amherstburg Bike Rodeo.
