Timmins motorcycle community asked to ride for a cause

June 22, 2018 by  

A special event that may be of interest to those in the Timmins’s motorcycle riders community will be soon be held, and they invited to join in a ride that will raise funds and awareness for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

The day of the ride will open registration at Matheson Fairgrounds, and this will be followed by a hearty free breakfast. At 10:00 am, the kickstands will go up and the group will set out, making stops at care homes in Timmins, Iroquois Falls, Matheson, and Cochrane. They will also take a coffee break at a Tim Horton’s along the way.

The organizers issued the invitation to all motorcyclists, whether they are new to the pastime or have been riding for years. They have suggested that anyone who is interested should preregister well ahead of time, as this will help them in planning how much food to buy for the breakfast. They have also asked that the riders set up a webpage on Canada Helps so that their friends, families and co-workers can make a donation. Banner printing can be used to create materials that the riders can carry on a trip like this to help raise awareness about a cause in their local community.

The ride will be held on July 21. More details can be found on the Timmins Chamber of Commerce website.
