2020 Ride For Mom Canceled

In light of Covid-19, we think the responsible action is to cancel the 2020 ATV Ride for Mom. We considered having it at a later date but found it challenging to find an appropriate date that wouldn’t interfere with already established ATV fundraising rides. We have our wind-up ride in the fall and to squeeze in the “Ride for Mom” in the same time frame, would be a disservice to the cause. We want to respect all our participants and volunteers for the “Ride for Mom” in that we know you may have high risk people in your daily life and want them to stay safe. We hope you understand, we all need to do our part to prevent the spread and are asking you to wait a year, June 5, 2021.

Eastman ATV stays committed to running safe family events, to continued trial development and our future together. We are currently working through the details to sign a new trail expansion and expect the new trail will be open this summer.

The 2019 ATV Ride for Mom Thanks You…

Hello and a big thank you to everyone who came out including rider’s, sponsors, vendors and volunteers for the 4th Annual ATV Ride for Mom. We greatly appreciate your desire to support CancerCare Manitoba while enjoying a day on the trail. In talking with riders through the day they said the parking went without a hitch, registration was a breeze and the trail was amazing. So thank you to the riders for letting us know what you liked or didn’t. We want to hear from you to make the event bigger and better next year so we need to know what you want.

It’s very clear we made a big mistake for lunch and we whole heartedly apologize for the long line and wait for the lunch. We have never had that before so we absolutely know how to fix it and we will.  Everyone was so patient and said the delay was ok. We know it’s absolutely not right and you all were too gracious to complain. Next year we will give you a great lunch with little wait to no wait the way it has been before. We will refine a plan before the next ride and we will report back to you.  We know we have to provide additional enjoyment to make it up to you.

Our ride was much bigger than last year in numbers and especially donations and money raised for CCM.

Sponsors dollars supporting  $6600
Money collected for CCM      still coming in….. $20,000
Riders attending411
Passengers attending 235

We are truly excited about the big increase in collections as that’s the point of this entire event to raise more money for CCM every year. So congratulations to all the riders collecting pledges, volunteers making this happen, and all our sponsors’ that made this event possible!

Most sincerely
Eastman ATV Association
