Be a part of Fresh Start Recovery Centre’s 10th annual 12 Stop Ride for Recovery Motorcycle Road Rally.

WHAT - This 12 Stop Ride for Recovery Motorcycle Road Rally  is a scavenger hunt style  motorcycle ride that increases awareness of the many ways that recovery restores lives previously destroyed by the disease of addiction. Fresh Start is a solution for many men and families. This event helps us raise funds so that more men and families can RECOVER their lives through Fresh Start.

WHO - Operating in Calgary for more than 25 years, Fresh Start Recovery Centre is a residential alcohol and drug addiction treatment centre that has been recognized nationally by the Donner Canadian Foundation as The Best Run treatment centre in Canada for effective program delivery for 2014, 2013 and 2010  and has been a Charity Intelligence Canada  Four Star Agency by each year since 2007 because of its efficient use of donor funds and impressive outcomes.

WHEN - Held on Saturday, August 25, 2018, registration begins at 8:00 am at Fresh Start (411 - 41 Ave NE, Calgary)  and the rubber hits the road at 9:30 am with RECOVERY RIDERS like you, receiving your first scavenger hunt clue to guide you to the first stop of your journey. This adventure is made up of a series of stops through our scenic city and rural landscapes. Each of the 12 Stops holds a new clue to direct you to a fun and unique experience at the next stop.
