Rev it up for SickKids: Riding in support of the Hospital for Sick Children.
Toronto, ON Canada, – On July 20th, 2014, Rev it Up for SickKids will host their 3rd Annual motorcycle ride supported by RE/MAX Ontario Atlantic and beginning at RE/MAX PREMIER in Vaughan with a kick-off breakfast.
Led by “Miracle” the motorcycle with Bruce & Holly Johnson from “Motorcycle for Miracles,” they will then depart for an emotional stop at the world-renowned children’s hospital where riders will REV UP their engines so patients and doctors can hear and see the support for sick children and the heroes that care for them.
Continuing on through a scenic route, the cavalcade of motorcycles, Party Limo Buses and celebrity vehicles will ride through the city to a final “secret” destination for an exclusive VIP luncheon and celebration including live entertainment, great prize giveaways and the famous “RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon.”
Help celebrate the homecoming of the famous “RE/MAX Flag” carried by Bruce Johnson of RE/MAX of Wasaga Beach through North & Central America to Costa Rica during his 21,700 km journey to raise funds for local CMN Hospitals. The Flag, signed by hundreds of Realtors across the continent, will be publicly unveiled on July 20th at the Rev It Up for SickKids Rally.
Join the ride and help make dreams a reality as the “Rev It Up” Team strives to reach this year’s goal of raising $100,000, furthering their $500,000 commitment to The SickKids Foundation. Every dollar raised goes directly to SickKids.
Also on hand at this year’s ride are the Toronto Argo Cheerleaders and the Bieber family with the famous “Bieber Batmobile.”
Close to $250,000 has been raised in the last two years and all proceeds from the event will be directed to purchase NIRS (Near Infrared Spectroscopy Technology) equipment, leading edge technology used to assess & monitor oxygen levels in a child’s body without the use of needles.
In addition, this year a portion of the proceeds will be donated to “The Alyssa Rae Johnson Fund” which fully supports The Hospital For Sick Children’s most urgent needs.
