“2012 Ride For Research”
Saturday September 08, 2012
In one way or another, everyone has been touched by this debilitating and painful disease. You may be living with one or more of the over 100 different types of Arthritis; you may be the parent of a child who has been diagnosed with juvenile arthritis; or your best friend may struggle with daily restrictions caused by rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Whatever your connection, we all want the same thing – a cure.
On Saturday September 08, 2012, motorcycle enthusiasts from London and surrounding communities will come together to raise funds for this very important cause. The London Chapter ( 028 ) of the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers will be hosting the 1st annual “Ride For Research” motorcycle Poker Run. This event is your chance to fight back against a disease that affects your life and the lives of millions of Canadians every day.

Registration will take place at the Canadian Tire Store parking lot located at the corner of Hyde Park Rd N and Fanshawe Park Rd W
Cost: The cost will be $ 20.00 per motorcycle and $ 5.00 per passenger. You will then be entered into the "Poker Run".
