On Saturday, August 10th, 2019, motorcycle enthusiasts took part in the 8th Annual Blue Tie Ride!
With kickstands up at 9:30 AM at Barrie Harley Davidson, 311 Bryne Rd, Barrie, ON, Ride goers enjoyed the wonderful country views and team spirit ending at the scenic Clevelands House Resort on Lake Rosseau, 1040 Juddhaven Rd, Minett, ON P0B 1G0
Blue Tie Ride was founded in 2011 by Raumar Bustamente and Dolly Betancourt who both share a passion for raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer and childhood sexual abuse. Net proceeds go to both Prostate Cancer Canada and The Gatehouse Child Abuse Investigation & Support Site. For more information please visit https://www.bluetieride.ca/
From the Bluet Tie Ride Committee:
As our 2019 season comes to a close, we are proud to announce that with the help of our generous sponsors, riders and everyone who donated and fundraised, we have raised $11,000 this year, bringing our total since 2011 to $80,000🙏 These net proceeds will be split 50/50 between our two charities, @prostatecancerc and @thegatehousetoronto
Our mission is to keep raising awareness and much-needed funds for these important causes, and every year we get a little closer to our $100,000 goal 😀
Our 9th annual ride is going to be held on Saturday, August 8th, 2020. We already have registered riders, so save the date!
Thank you to our supporters, friends, our fabulous MC Wendy Crystal TSC and our BTR TEAM AWESOME! And of course, we could not do this without our generous sponsors: @drywallerslocal675 @carpenters27 @investorsgroup @barriehd @clevelandshouse @unitrimasonry @emergency_motorcycle_services #ontariohogrally #emswhiteknights
To all those that shared their amazing stories of survival, to those beautiful families that have had their faith tested during hard times and to those that just came to show their support for two great charities, we love you, we thank you and we appreciate you!
May those that are struggling, continue to find the strength to fight another day. May you always be reminded of how strong and beautiful you are! You are all warriors and we salute you!
💙 see you at the January motorcycle show Jan 3,4,5 2020💙
