Join the LOOK & Stepper Homes Revving Up for Kids with Cancer Society for the 2nd annual motorcycle adventure — an amazing experience that you will never forget.
Beginning in Edmonton, you will travel through some of Alberta and British Columbia’s most incredible countryside as you journey through Canmore, Radium, Golden, Revelstoke, and throughout the majestic Kootenay Valley.
The details are all taken care of — all you need to bring is your adventurous spirit and passion to help children with cancer.
A Word of Thanks from Nathan

The Kids with Cancer Society can answer any questions that you may have. They will make every effort possible to ensure that your experience is a positively memorable adventure. You can reach them via any of the following means:
Or log onto their website.
Safety remains the number one priority. All riders are required to attend the mandatory safety check and orientation before heading out on the highway. You can download the safety rules from their brochure. Be sure to carefully review this information prior to the ride. To ensure your safety as well as that of others, you are requested to abstain from any alcohol when riding and during rest stops.
Accommodations are based upon double occupancy. If you have not requested a particular roommate, one will be assigned to you. If you prefer to stay in a single room you will be required to pay the additional costs. Call the Society to make arrangements at 780-496-2459.
Prior to the ride you will be advised of the name of your ride leader and who will be riding with you. The adventure begins “rain or shine”, so be sure to bring your rain gear.
