It will be a thrilling and moving sight – a sea of red marching towards the start line as the iconic RMCP Pipes and Drum band announces the start of the first event. This group of citizen volunteers has a special connection to the Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario organization. A Wish Mom, a long standing member of this Band, is the reminder of why we will be present on May 8, 2010. As the Band marches towards the start line, we look forward to recognizing all Wish families—past, present and future.
