Pat Burns with the Stanley Cup and his Harley. His two passions.
The Pat Burns Ride of Courage by PROCURE
Pat Burns had 2 passions: hockey and motorcycles.
This is why, when Jean Pagé had the idea of a motorcycle event to raise funds for prostate cancer research, he immediately thought of honouring Pat Burns memory and the incredible courage Pat showed during his own fight against cancer.
