The 10th annual Algoma Ride for Autism will roll this weekend.
According to organizer Jamie Boston, all funds raised stay in the community.
“The ride is a collection of people from all walks of life coming together for a great cause, supporting people and families affected by autism and other needs. Every single penny raised stays in our community and is directly spent helping others,” said Boston, in the lead-up to this year’s event. “Even if people don’t ride, the sights and sounds of that many motorcycles all starting and moving in unison is quite moving! Riders appreciate seeing the people they are helping… it’s a win/win.”
The “stands-up” call that heralds the start of the ride, this year, will be made by a young woman named Sophia and according to Boston, she’s loving the idea of all the bikes going by.
Registration can either be done by contacting the organization through their Facebook Page or by arriving at Strathclair park between 10-11 a.m. on Saturday morning. The weather looks to be good and organizers look forward to seeing everyone there.
