Get ready to rev up those motorcycle engines as the 30th anniversary of the annual Alberta Ride for Sight rolls out of Red Deer on June 23.
The motorcycle fundraiser is in support of innovative vision research to fight blindness and find cures for retinal degenerative diseases.
Riding participants throughout Alberta will meet up at Stoney Nakoda Resort and Casino just outside of Morley, west of Calgary.
The event will begin with various parades departing from cities across the province.
The Red Deer parade will start at Turple Bros. Ltd. at 37478 Hwy 2 south, west side of Gasoline Alley, at 9 a.m. Coffee and doughnuts will be available for riders from 8:30 to 8:45 a.m.
Riders are asked to fundraise a minimum of $50 to attend. Prizes will be available for those who raise more. Live music, bike vendors and games, demo rides, a classic car show and free camping will make up the grand event at Stoney Nakoda.
All funds raised go to the Foundation for Fighting Blindness.
