The 2012 Heroes Highway Ride & Rally is a Support the Troops initiative that has seen
exponential grow since it's inception in 2009. Our event in 2012 will start from CFB
Trenton and we are honoured and privileged to announce that our Grand Marshall will be
Darlene Cushman, mother of Fallen Canadian Forces Trooper Darryl Caswell (June 11,
2007).Trooper Darryl Caswell was taken while riding in a Coyote and hit by IED.
A motorcycle enthusiast Darryl was told one more ticket and he wouldn't be able to go
serve in Afghanistan, but his goal was to serve as a proud Canadian Forces member, so he
gave up his love for speed and focused on the his desire to make difference in Afghanistan.
Darlene had always planned to join her son and share in his enthusiasm for motorcycles
but as many of us know life, sometimes can get in the way of our plans and we believe that
we will always be do it another day. This was not to be, as an Roadside IED ended the
dream of Darlene riding with her son, side by side. Darlene, determined to keep her word
and follow through with getting her motorcycle licence, took a course a short time after
Darryl's passing so she would be able to share in what was once her sons passion.
When asked to join us, Darlene shared this story with me, I could not feel anything less
the the love and compassion for a son that followed a dream to live a bigger life and make
a difference to people around the world.
The HHR has always been about Support for the Troops, past and present, the injured and
recognizing the sacrifices of the families, of which Darlene knows all to well..
The Heroes Highway Ride and the members of the Perfect Pigs M.C. have receive
recognition from the House Of Commons for our fundamental approach to boosting morale
and connecting Canadians to the members of the Canadian Forces while raising
awareness of the seriousness of Operation Stress Injuries often suffered during missions
in theatres of combat and are now showing up in many members of the Canadian Forces
that served in the recent combat mission in Afghanistan.
