It’s been a Father’s Day weekend tradition for 17 years, and Sudbury’s motorcycle community is ready to make it a 18th – rain or shine.
June has been proclaimed Prostate Cancer Awareness Month by Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger, and the Northern Cancer Foundation is excited to take motorcycle enthusiasts on a 200+ km scenic ride on June 15.
The ride starts at the Northeast Cancer Centre Centre and travels eastbound on Highway 17 to Verner, then south to Noëlville and returning to Sudbury and to A&W on Marcus Drive via Highway 69.
The rally is followed by lunch and prizes at A&W. Registration is still open and costs $35 per participant, or free with $100 in pledges.
"Watching the motorcycles drive up Paris Street towards the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre will be among the most powerful images of the summer," said a news release from the NCF.
Speeches get underway at 10 a.m. and the ride departs at 10:30 a.m. on June 15 at the Northeast Cancer Centre (41 Ramsey Lake Rd.).
All proceeds from this event are donated to the Northern Cancer Foundation for Prostate Cancer Awareness.
