Looking for something fun to do with your family this Father's Day weekend? Check out the Tbaytel Motorcycle Ride for Dad presented by Winmar.

This unique event is held in support of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation’s Northern Cancer Fund for prostate cancer. 100% of the proceeds stay in Northwestern Ontario to fight prostate cancer through advanced awareness and treatment. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men and constitutes over a quarter of all cancers in males. The rate of cancer in Northern Ontario is approximately 5.4% higher than the rest of Canada. The Tbaytel Motorcycle Ride for Dad presented by Winmar is Saturday June 17, 2017. Included is a full day of exciting activities for riders, passengers and spectators. The day starts off with registration and a hot buffet breakfast for participants at 7:30 a.m. followed by the thunderous Roar for the Cure at 9:30 a.m. when over 325 riders simultaneously kick start their engines and head out on a parade down Arthur Street followed by a scenic Poker Run in and around the city of Thunder Bay, ON.
