Each year riders come from all across Manitoba to show their support. By participating, or pledging a rider for the Breast Cancer Pledge Ride you will be part of the solution to kick cancer. Visit the Breast Cancer Pledge Ride web-site to see how your support has made a difference throughout the years. In 2001 an enthusiastic team of women and men came together at a kitchen table to create the Breast Cancer Pledge Ride. The goal of the ride is to make a difference in our community today by bringing Manitoba motorcyclists together to raise funds. “As we discussed the idea of raising money for breast cancer, we discovered that it had touched many of our lives. We heard many stories of grandmothers, mothers, sisters, wives and brothers. We realized breast cancer was closer than we thought. It is amazing how one small idea could blossom into an event that enables us to make such an impact on the health of our province. Our event attracts over 600 registrants annually and is growing. In 14 years the Manitoba motorcycling community has raised over $850,000 to fight breast cancer in Manitoba. 100% of funds raised go directly to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and stay in our province.” Georgette Jhass, Committee Co-chair
