Snowmobilers Raise Dollars And Awareness For Sight
Ian Mullin is the Chairman of the committee for the event, and has participated for 20 + years on the ride.
“We are proud to say that as participants, we cover our own expenses, so that 100 per cent of the money we collect goes straight to charity.”
Riders help to pay their own way, and rural sponsors cover expenses such as hotel lodgings and gas. On top of collecting donations, a snowmobile is raffled off every year to raise additional funds.
The ride, which takes place every year in the third week of January, is not just a fundraiser but a time of good fellowship and jaw-dropping Manitoba winter scenery.
We are so grateful to the Journey for Sight for all that they do to raise money and awareness for eye health.
