About Ride for Sight
Ride for Sight is the longest running motorcycle charity fundraiser in Canada; the first ride began in 1979 in Central Ontario. Each regional Ride has its own unique features. Annual Ride for Sight weekend celebration events are supported in part by generous corporate sponsorship and are organized by volunteer Ride for Sight Planning Teams. While Ride for Sight participants are primarily comprised of motorcyclists -- volunteers, fundraisers and supporters also include non-motorcyclists and families affected by retinal diseases.
Ride for Sight is the single largest private fundraising initiative for vision research in the world. To-date, Ride for Sight has raised more than $18 million in support of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, the only organization in Canada whose mandate is to fund research for blindness caused by retinal degenerations.
How Ride for Sight Works
Ride for Sight participants collect donations (some, all year round) from friends, colleagues and family; those who raise a minimum donation of ($50 to $75 depending on region), are eligible to participate at a Ride for Sight Celebration event. The Celebrations feature a variety of activities including: bike games, live entertainment, show n’ shines, a vendor marketplace and more. Participants also have the option of riding in a motorcycle parade from a select location to the celebration site; takes place on the Saturday of the weekend celebration; Central Ontario Ride for Sight is the largest motorcycle parade in the country.
“Not many people know that Ride for Sight motorcyclists and their family and friends have been the largest community funding Canadian vision research for more than 30 years,” said Sharon Colle, President and CEO, Foundation Fighting Blindness. “Their commitment to fund research into the causes, the needed treatments and ultimately the cures for blindness is inspiring.”
