Calling all Riders! Kicking off the 12th Annual Ride 4 the Cure
On September 11-12th, 2015 the 12th Annual Ride 4 the Cure motorcycle rally will take place through Cape Breton’s beautiful Cabot Trail.
The Ride 4 the Cure organizing committee, made up of the Sydney Lions Club and local motorcycle groups are gearing up for Ride 2015. The Ride 4 the Cure, in support of the Cape Breton Cancer Centre and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation has raised more than $654,000 over the last 11 years.
Bernie Mason, chair of Ride 4 the Cure, says he is thrilled with the community’s support for the event and is looking forward to another successful year in 2015. “This year we are hoping to go above and beyond last year’s total. Last year was special for the new organizing committee and we hope to offer another great experience for riders this year, and raise more money for cancer care this September,” says Mason.
