Ride For Doug is a charity motorcycle event aimed at raising money and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy. Muscular Dystrophy is a deadly genetic disorder that cripples and kills every child it affects by the gradual destruction of the muscles in the body.
Doug is my 6 year old son, and he has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Ride For Doug provides motorcyclists in Langley, throughout the Lower Mainland, and around the world the opportunity to get together, go on a ride, and raise some money. Last year we raised over $8,500 for the Vancouver Chapter of Muscular Dystrophy Canada. This year, we can do more.
We meet in South Langley, and ride through Langley, Abbotsford and Mission and end up back where we started for a big BBQ.
All the details are at www.RideForDoug.com. Check out the website for photos and video from last year's ride, as well as a special message from Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. Seriously cool.
