The Peace Keepers Pedaling for Aboriginals with Diabetes started their annual bike ride on Thursday, May22nd in Thunder Bay as part of their initiative to educate and raise awareness for Diabetes.

PPAD started in 2005 on the West Coast, and this years portion of the ride will finish in Ottawa on June 6th at 1:00 p.m on Parliament Hill.

Since starting on Thursday the police members have covered 700 kms, and are just outside of Sault Ste. Marie. Five other police services briefly joined them in the ride as they passed through their communities.
