Join Us For A Scavenger Hunt On the Road!
The Ride For Hearth Place is changing things up this year. We aren't able to gather as we normally would to send everyone off at the beginning and to celebrate at the end of the day but, we can still have some fun and raise money for a great cause!
How Does It Work?
- You're on the hunt for Fire Halls! Ride to them - take a photo - email it in. Ride anywhere you would like and enjoy a day on the open road.
- Each bike registered will be given their own Number. This Number must be included in every photo.
- Once registered, specific instructions and rules will be emailed to you.
- Fundraise, fundraise, fundraise! Share your personal fundraising page with your friends and family and ask them to support your efforts in fundraising for Durham Region’s only cancer support centre.
