motorcycle ride | silent auction | dinner
The event features a motorcycle rally starting from the A&W at 2404 Long Lake Road (registration opens at 8:30 am, KSU at 10 am) in Sudbury, and heading to Manitoulin Island for lunch. After the rally, there will be a silent auction, dinner, and entertainment at Wahnapitae Community Centre (doors open 4:30 pm, dinner at 5:15 pm). Our silent auction will have some amazing prizes!
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is very close to our hearts. Our daughter Ryleigh was born at 29 weeks, weighing 2 lbs 2 ounces and spent the first few months of her life at SickKids in Toronto. She had two surgeries on her little head and defied a pretty scary prognosis. She is a tough little fighter with a contagious smile and big personality. Our experience in the NICU made us appreciate the hard work of the staff, the nurses, the doctors, the surgeons, the specialists, the social workers and the volunteers that dedicate their lives to helping children. We want to give back!!! We want to raise money so SickKids can build the new and much needed hospital that will continue to help so many children each day.
Ryleigh’s Ride is now in Memory of Johnny (Valcourt), the most amazing spouse and daddy ever. He passed away in a motorcycle accident on May 2, 2021. This event was his dream while he was snuggling Ryleigh in the NICU at SickKids. This ride will now go on in his honour for years to come.
So if you ride a bike, register today and create an online account to collect some pledges from your friends and family. It will be a great day, a beautiful ride and a chance to put miles on the bike!! Get your family to meet you after the ride for dinner (Please note: dinner is included in registration fee for riders and passengers).
Registration will also be available on-site on event day but we encourage everyone to register in advance, and just pick up the Riders Package on the day of the Ride.
If you're not a rider, come have dinner with us! Bring your family and join us. Its a great excuse to not cook at home. It will be a delicious meal and a chance to bid on some fantastic items and support a great cause that has helped so many families, including many from Northern Ontario.
