Each year nearly 850 Manitoba women hear the words, you have cancer. Breast is the most common cancer diagnosis affecting the lives of hundreds of women we know and love.
To date, the Pledge Ride has raised over $1 Million dollars for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. All funds raised stay in the province to help people like your mother, daughter, sister or friend in their fight against breast cancer. We are grateful to the community for pulling together and riding as a team to make a difference.

In 2001 an enthusiastic team of women and men came together to create a motorcycle fundraising ride. As we discussed the idea of raising money for breast cancer, we discovered that it had touched many of our lives. We heard many stories of grandmothers, mothers, sisters, wives and brothers. We realized breast cancer was closer than we thought.
It is amazing how one small idea could blossom into an event that enables us to make such an impact on the health of our province. In eighteen years the Manitoba motorcycling community has raised over $1,050,000 to fight breast cancer in Manitoba. The money was raised mainly in 5, 10 and 20-dollar donations, proving that every dollar really does add up.
A huge thank you goes out to all the motorcycle enthusiasts who participate and support this worthy cause. Without YOU we would not have done it! Your efforts have made a difference in our province by helping purchase the third mobile mammography screening unit and a cargo van to transport the units across the province. The mobile units enable more women in rural and remote areas of our province to be screened for breast cancer every year.
The Breast Cancer Pledge Ride committee is made up of passionate volunteers.
