2020 Ride For Mom Donation Campaign

Annually in June our club does a “Ride for Mom”, the goal of which is to raise money for CancerCare MB. We are very proud to state that over the last four years the Ride for Mom has raised over $54,000, all of which was turned over to CancerCare MB to be used at their discretion in the research and treatment of cancer in this Province.
This year, due to Covid-19, there was not an actual Ride for Mom, however despite that, the Eastman ATV Club has instead decided to launch a Ride for Mom Campaign to raise funds. The Ride for Mom Campaign will run from September 15 th toOctober 31 st , 2020, after which all donations will be turned over to CancerCare MB. I am asking you to consider making a donation for this very worthy cause. All donations in any amount are more than welcome and tax receipts will be issued by CancerCare MB for any donation over $15. We have several easy options available to assist you with your donation:

  1. You can make your donation directly to CancerCare MB by following the this link to their site. The advantage of this is that you will receive your tax receipt by email very promptly. CancerCare MB link is: http://support.cancercarefdn.mb.ca/goto/EastmanATVRideForMom
  2. Make a cheque payable to CancerCare MB Foundation and mail it to Eastman ATV, 6-1329 Niakwa Road East, Winnipeg, MB, R2J 3T4. Please also include your name, mailing address and email address for tax receipting purposes.
  3. You can e-transfer your donation to rideformom@eastmanatv.com Please include your name, mailing address and
    email address for tax receipting purposes. In order to ensure your e-donation is secure, please use the following question and password: Question: What is the name of this campaign? Answer: rideformom
  4. You can contact Eastman ATV Club President Donald Eidse at deidse@eastmanatv.com or 204- 558-5690 for more information.

Cancer is a devastating disease that touches our hearts deeply, as we all have loved ones and friends that it has impacted in the past, is doing so right now and unfortunately will do so again in the future. However, your donation helps enable ongoing cancer research, which equates to new cutting-edge treatments and drugs, which in some cases translates into cures or longer life expectancies.
Once again, thanks very much for supporting this very worthy cause. Its people like you that make a difference.

Eastman ATV Sept 2020 Update

Please continue to be aware of 2 Meter Physical Distance This is the same for stops you make during a ride, give more room than normal.  

We had our AGM and then a ride after, temperature on the trail was T-shirt weather, same with our Seddons Corner ride. We are seeing a lot of Eastman ATV T-shirts being worn, it looks good!

SEPTEMBER RIDE CHANGE ALERT Our next ride is September 1th, we have changed the ride, the start point is the Woodridge staging area, more details coming in the September Ride Update.

Many of us have enjoyed a good riding season so far this year, the June ATV Ride for Mom was cancelled due to Covid 19 and along with that our opportunity to collect for Cancer Care Manitoba. The ATV RIDE for MOM is still of great interest to our community, what are we doing this year? I’ve been asked a number of times, some members have been raising money for CancerCare Manitoba and we want to share some ideas with you as to how we can all help. We are doing a simple fundraiser, through members, friends and families. We want to make this as easy as possible to make it successful for you & our community to help CancerCare Manitoba. Stay tuned….More details coming. All donations are 100% to CancerCare Manitoba.  

The ATV Ride for Mom is a committee of Eastman ATV and this event gives a growing purpose to our organization.  This event is becoming more recognized every year, it’s both an important cause and great family ride all in one.  

We continue to have rides for members only, we allow members to invite a guest or 2 for the next ride and we will continue to send an email to 2020 members before each ride, one week or so before the ride to confirm ride details.  Membership is annual look at our Events tab at our website for updated information on Rides. Join for $45 a year to Join Eastman ATV  and get your Membership and Voluntary Trail Pass decal.  https://eastmanatv.com/product/membership-2020  

Be aware some members are in the high risk Covid 19 category.  Please respect Physical Distance.

Eastman ATV June Update

Great News!…..Rides Are On! The June 6 ride is on, we will ride some existing trails and some new trail, some nice canopy trail along the escarpment, it’s a fantastic start to the season featuring the best Eastman ATV trails. Our June 27 Mars Hill is also ON!. 
Club rides will be members only, additionally to protect our membership we request that members not to invite guests on rides until we can develop a plan that works for the membership and the volunteers. Planning requires letting us know if you plan on attending, we will see very soon as our schedule is  back on track.  We will send an email to 2020 members for each ride 1 week or so before the ride to confirm ride details. (They have been sent to 2020 members already). Check out all our events at https://eastmanatv.com/events

Hats and T-shirts will be for sale at the 1st ride $20 each. Bring cash. We had the product up in the store for several months with little sales. We are taking most down and will move to one time orders, at this time it will be hats and T-shirts. Let us know by email or order at the store while we have hats ( black or grey) and t-shirts.  Let me know how you would manage our store to carry the right products. See our store at  https://eastmanatv.com/shop-2

Continue to be aware of 2 Meter Physical Distancing. This is the same for stops you make during a ride. Please take the necessary action to keep physical distance, and set an example for others. Wear a face mask or dust mask when you are unable to control the 2 meter buffer in general conversation with other riders.

DANGER Please consider, many members care for people in the high risk category or belong to the high risk category. Please respect Physical Distancing, if we all do that we create a barrier for the high risk.

Eastman ATV is grateful for the recent volunteers that are coming out to help on the trail, join our board and help out on rides. Thank you for coming and being part of building our community.  Please be part of trail development and maintenance.

Special Mention Our 1st club ride this year will take us on part of what was planned for the 2020 ATV Ride For Mom!!! Deborah Nicole founded the “ATV Ride for Mom” and then went on to become president of Eastman ATV. Deborah brought life and enthusiasm to the Ride for Mom, thank you Deborah. The event continues to be one of Eastman ATVs valuable contributors to CancerCare Manitoba, I expect all 700 or 800 who come out for June 5 Saturday 2021 RFM will have a fully enjoyable experience from rider, sponsor and volunteer.

Eastman continues to focus on trails & rides. Same great family price $45 Join Eastman ATV  and get your Membership / voluntary Trail Pass decal. Membership https://eastmanatv.com/product/membership-2020

We would like to have our  AGM in person, we will give 30 days notice as required in our bylaws, sooner would be better to be orderly, we will bring new board members moving forward and vote in at the AGM.

Hopefully the weather is nice and we can do the social part of the meeting outdoors, we will see and keep you posted on the details.
