Since 1967, Distress Centres has been providing an around-the-clock emotional safety net for community members who are socially marginalized, distressed, in crisis, victims of violence or suicidal. Last year, more than 120,000 calls were answered on our help lines. Through our Survivor Support Programme, hundreds of other individuals received face-to-face grief counseling in the tragic aftermath of a death by suicide or homicide. Distress Centres was also able to provide service to countless professionals, organizations and concerned citizens through the training and consultation provided by our Community Outreach Programme. Each and every service is provided free of charge to participants. In an attempt to ensure easy access to our crisis lines, we have a TTY line for the hearing impaired and employ a 151 language interpreter service. Bikers Against Distress known as B.A.D. Ride is a charity bike ride event MINI Markham supports, this year at BAD Ride 2013 we are provided track entertainment with a race off between our Countryman S and Cooper S. Congratulations to Monte who was the winner of our MINI Markham Psychic Ballon Stuff contest guessing one one away from the actual amount of balloons which filled one our MINI Coopers.

MINI Markham had a lot of fun performing at the annual (Bikers Against Distress) B.A.D. Ride 2012 at the Markham Fairgrounds on May 27 2012. This is our first ever show featuring a few of our MINIs in a game of Soccer we named "Soc-Car" and Pat Gonslaves from Q107 was broadcasting live at the show. After many rounds of kickoffs and head to head action we would like to congratulate Team Shelia and Rany in the red MINI Cooper crowned as the winners of MINI Markham Soc-Car 2012 Champion! All the pics from our event after the jump.
