Join us in the first-ever Move to Remember challenge! Join us in honouring our fallen Members and supporting their families by pledging a movement activity and distance of your choice to be completed during the month of September. Run, walk, bike, paddle, roll, swim… The choice is yours! This year, our goal is to collectively achieve and surpass 246 km of movement as an act of remembrance of our 246+ fallen Members.
The 246+ represents fallen Members who have given their lives on duty on our honour roll, plus those whose work-related injuries led to suicide. We keep them all in our hearts and minds as a tangible testimony to the risk and sacrifice faced by RCMP Members and their families.
The first 246 participants to register will receive a complimentary branded t-shirt, and those who complete the longest distances will receive goodies from sponsors.

How many kilometers do I have to pledge and how long do I have to complete them?
Participants can pledge any distance they desire and complete them at any time during the month of September. This year, our goal is to achieve 246 km of movement as an act of remembrance of our 246+ fallen Members.
What does 246+ represent?
The 246+ represents fallen Members who have given their lives on duty. The “+” represents our Members who have lost their lives by suicide.
The NPF’s RCMP Memorial remembers those who lost their lives serving their country and communities. Front-line RCMP Members put their lives on the line for Canadians every shift while they work to make Canada safer. These selfless Members are remembered by family members, friends, colleagues, and their communities and will never be forgotten.
