June, 2016 - The 2nd Annual Rollin for Recovery "Power Ride" event will take place on Saturday, August 27th starting in Langley and ending the day in Whistler. All drivers are welcome.
Hosted by Trueline Power and sponsored in part by Local 258 IBEW, this event was brought into concept by the partners of Trueline Power, a Local 258 IBEW signatory contractor, to support workers who have been directly affected by workplace accidents in the utility industry and support them on their road to recovery.
Last year, with the inaugural "Power Ride" event, over $18,000 was raised through entry fees and sponsorships, and donations. As a result, $12,000 was donated to the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund to support the recently opened Burn Fund Centre in Vancouver, and, the group gave $6,000 to Local 258 IBEW member Taras Atleo who was severely injured in a workplace accident in 2014 to support him and his family on their way to recovery.
