Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live
Vancouver Island Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live
While we would all love to come together and celebrate another successful ride, we also know that bringing people together in large groups is just not going to work this year. But even though we cannot come together as a group, we have made the decision to move this year’s Vancouver Island Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live from an in-person event to a virtual experience. While we all know how much fun this event is, we are looking out for the safety of all of our community when making this difficult decision.
What will our virtual event look like?
Instead of getting together on September 13th at Enrico Winery we encourage you to get out and ride the beautiful route we had originally planned on your own or with your close circle. We will also send out our Ride & Seek questionnaire for a chance to win a prize for completion. As we get closer to the event date, we will release more news around the possibility of muster points or pit stops along the way. On the day of the ride we will can all post and share our photos or videos from the day on our social media channels to help bring us together virtually!
September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The Ride to Live is an important day in September to remember and honour those we have lost or those who are facing a prostate cancer diagnosis. This event is also an important fundraiser for Island Prostate Centre’s vital work in supporting those 1 in 9 men on Vancouver Island facing this diagnosis.
For this year only, when you register, this “registration fee” of only $25.00 will be classified as a donation to Island Prostate Centre and will be eligible for a tax receipt.
We will still offer prizing to the top 3 fundraising participants, to help encourage further fundraising around the event.
All current participants will be contacted to discuss the option of converting your paid registration fee to a taxable donation and the status of your apparel order.
What’s Raised on the Island, Stays on the Island!
Right now, 1 in every 9 Vancouver Island men is diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live raises awareness by staging this event focused on Prostate Cancer early detection and prevention. We have raised over $690,000 towards education and research right here on Vancouver Island. We ride for our dads, our brothers and our friends. Join us Sunday, September 13th!
