Saskatchewan Ride for Sight

Ride for Sight Promo SKRide for Sight is Canada’s longest-running and most renowned motorcycle charity event.

 

It was started in 1979 in Ontario by Jim Bentley, inspired by his friend Jack who was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa. 

From its humble beginnings, Ride for Sight has grown from a small local fundraising event to a national initiative which raises more than $1 Million annually -- making Ride for Sight not only the largest charity motorcycle event in Canada, but the single largest fundraiser for vision research in the world. 

All of the funds raised through Ride for Sight support the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB), the only organization in Canada whose mandate is to fund research for blindness caused by retinal degenerations. Since 1974, FFB has invested $30 million to support vision research across Canada -- leading to over 600 new discoveries in exciting areas of study like: stem cell research, neuroprotective therapies, technological developments, pharmaceuticals and gene therapies. 

Since 2013, the Saskatchewan Ride for Sight has raised almost $55,000 to support this important research. This year the Ride for Sight will take place June 23, 24, & 25 at the Kemoca Regional Park in Montmartre. Kemoca has a swimming pool, concession, playground, washroom and shower facilities, and lots of space for camping. Camping fees are not included in event fees. To book a camping spot phone 306.424.7275. 

Join us and be a part of the biggest fundraiser in support of the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Entry to the weekend festivities is free when you collect $50 in pledges, or you can pay a $25 gate fee. It is a family friendly event, starting with a group ride Saturday morning, parade through Montmartre, an afternoon of motorcycle games & pedal bike games for the kids, and evening entertainment! You don’t need to have a motorcycle to participate! All are welcome! For more information on the Ride for Sight, please contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
