2021 ATV Ride for Mom Update
Due to the uncertainty of COVID restrictions, the 2021 ATV Ride for Mom, scheduled for Saturday June 5th, is canceled.
We have moved the ATV Ride for Mom to Saturday June 4th 2022!! Last year, the ATV Ride for Mom, raised over $14,000 for Cancer Care Manitoba. The funds raised were achieved without the ride event and without the support of our sponsors. Making a difference doesn’t always require a complicated agenda.
This year, I’m asking our membership to consider investing their time to help CancerCare Manitoba. I will be reporting back after we meet in mid summer, to make a plan. Please let me know if you want to help.
The ATV Ride for Mom is a committee formed by Eastman ATV and we do not take the decision to cancel lightly. This event is there to help the health of Manitobans. Ultimately, the ride cancellation is about respecting the health and well being of our health care workers, and fellow Manitobans. COVID restrictions may still be in place this coming fall. Therefore, planning a ride for that time of year, does not guarantee that the ride wouldn’t be canceled. We want this event to stand out in every one’s mind, while doing right by all Manitobans along with visitors from Ontario, Saskatchewan, Minnesota and North Dakota! The ride welcomes all guests and we don’t want to prevent anyone from attending. So yes, the responsible thing to do is to have the ATV Ride for Mom June, Saturday 4th, 2022.
Thank you Deb Nickel, founder of this event. The energy this event brings to the club is very positive, and the spirit of the “event” touches most of those who have participated. Our club is proud to continue to do our best with treating all RFM events with the care and respect each event deserves.
The ATV Ride for Mom is looking for a breast cancer survivor, to share their story, using Eastman ATV as a platform to raise money for Cancer Care Manitoba. It can be a difficult decision to share one’s story and not everyone is able to do it. However, your story can help and touch many lives. If you are able, please consider this sharing opportunity. You can choose your level of involvement; a little or a lot, this year or next year.
