Video: Ride for Dad at Rideau Ferry, Ontario This July!

As the northern hemisphere slowly crawls out from the battering it got from a prolonged winter into spring, the event announcements continue to pour in, providing us with warm thoughts of fun on the water. As part of the good news, we’re very excited to announce the first of the TELUS Ride For Dad charity rides.

Scheduled for July 12, in Rideau Ferry Harbour in Ontario, Canada, the day of riding will include a catered lunch, poker run, prizes and a while lot more all while raising money to fight prostate cancer. The Ride For Dad series has raised over 13 million dollars for the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation since 2000. Working to support prostate cancer research and awareness in the same communities where the rides are held, TELUS Ride For Dad is saving lives while helping get the most from life.

According to their site, “We raise funds through large scale one-day motorcycle, snowmobile, watercraft and ATV ride events and through ongoing public fundraising throughout the year. TELUS Ride For Dad events take place in multiple cities across Canada, representing every Canadian province.”
