Great Northern Ride


The 18th Annual Great Northern Ride


Once again, our Great Northern Ride did not disappoint and was a rousing success. This year, a record number of 125 riders travelled to New Brunswick, surpassing out target by raising $212,500. The funds raised from this event continue to support our unfunded Every Kid Counts program.

Bob Caissie, the founder of the ride, continues to work tirelessly to ensure the ride’s success, and is a perfect host for the week. It takes a coordinated effort to orchestrate this event, and we are fortunate to have the support of volunteers, truck drivers, trucking companies and Carrier Truck to get our sleds to their destination. A sincere thank you to our riders and sponsors who supported our 18th ride.
