Our vision has been 2020 since inception:
Unite Canadians to fund the necessary vision research needed to cure blindness! And we've never strayed from that road.
Ride for Sight is a proven favourite of the Canadian Rider and non-riding motorcycle enthusiast alike. It has always been about raising funds for Fighting Blindness Canada and their important eye disease research, and today the dedication of our Riders remains steadfast.
Riders from every part of Canada, over
the years, have helped to deliver over $26 million dollars for essential vision research to Fighting Blindness Canada.
A proud 42 year history,
our rallying cry remains the same:
Ride for Sight ...because you can!
Ride for Sight Sponsors, Supporters and Friends
Ride for Sight is the great Canadian motorcycling tradition, perhaps "the Ride that started them all"; but more importantly we unite Canadians to fund Vision Research.
We're your brothers and sisters, your mothers and fathers, your neighbors, your co-workers, your sons and daughters, your uncles and aunts, your nieces and nephews, your grand parents.... We come from all walks of life, from all parts of this wonderful country, and we ride everything imaginable.
We raise funds on behalf of Fighting Blindness Canada, and we come together each year in celebration of our fundraising efforts at various points across the country. From our humble beginnings in 1979 to today, we've been committed to one thing: Fighting Blindness.
Join Us! We don't care what you ride, we don't care what you wear! Choose your Province, print a donation sheet and start fundraising. Whether you raise $75 or $7,500 your efforts at fundraising will be appreciated.
We hope to see you at a Celebration!

Alberta Riders take the Road to Ontario
Alberta Riders and High Milers, Cliff and Joyce Lastiwka made the long ride to Ontario from Whitecourt, AB in June, bringing with them $5,900 in donations, many of which they collected enroute. The Ontario Volunteers found them another $100 in donations to make it an even $6,000!
The Ontario Volunteer Team met them with open arms, and even let them help out around the Celebration site. Later in July, Cliff made it down to the Bragg Creek Celebration in Alberta also - bringing more donations.
