The 7Tth Annual BLUE TIE RIDE MOTORCYCLE RALLY in support of Prostate Cancer Canada and The Gatehouse Toronto WHAT: Playing on Bruce Springsteen’s famous song, the Blue Tie Ride is comprised of motorcycle-loving men and women who were Born to Ride!
This flock of easy ridin’ enthusiasts take to the streets for a family friendly, fun-filled day of awareness and fundraising for 2 very important charities: Prostate Cancer Canada and The Gatehouse, a charitable organization that provides support, community and resources for individuals impacted by childhood sexual abuse.
The Gatehouse also works closely with the Toronto Police and Children’s Aid Society, providing a safe haven for children who have been affected by sexual abuse.
Our goal this year is to not only surpass our six-year total of $59,000 raised, but to zoom past it by raising $100,000. 100% of the net proceeds are split 50/50 between both charities.
WHEN: Saturday August 11, 2018 – Registration begins @ 8:00am
WHERE: START: Barrie Harley Davidson, 311 Bryne Drive, Barrie, Ontario (the 3 hour ride will take us through Muskoka) FINISH: Lagoon Harbour Resort and Hotel, Brechin Ontario We will top off the day with lunch, prizes, auction and live entertainment!
WHY? 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys will experience an unwanted sexual act before the age of 18. Since 1998, The Gatehouse has been a safe place for survivors of childhood sexual abuse to have their voice heard. Through nonjudgmental listening in an atmosphere of compassion, people feel safe, heard, understood and supported.
