REALTORS® Care Motorcycle Ride
by Lynn Martin
(Cambridge, Ontario, Canada)
This is a ride for all motorcycle enthusiasts, especially REALTORS® in Southern Ontario.
The ride will go over a four (4) day period, participants coming out for the full four days and others just coming out for a day or so of riding.
We will be departing out of the Toronto Real Estate Board located at 1400 Don Mills on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 and ending in Ottawa on Friday night, July 15th, 2011.
Saturday will be a fun day returning back home.
The trip will consist of riding through beautiful Southern Ontario, mostly back roads with stops at various real estate boards and also charity organizations that have been recipients to the proceeds from previous years rides.
The proceeds from the ride go to the REALTORS Care™ Foundation, where they are dispursed to hundreds of shelter based charities through a granting process.
The cost of the ride is $25 per person (riders and passengers) or a minimum of $100 in donations.
All costs incurred during the ride are the responsibility of the riders (hotel/gas, etc.) We arrange blocks of rooms as certain hotels for each night and meals are sometimes provided by from the boards we visit.
It's a comfortable ride, not too fast, not too slow, and each rider is provided with route materials if they so wish to travel by themselves.
It's all about raising funds for shelters that can improve the quality of life for someone and raising awareness on how much the REALTORS® Care and do for their communities.
