Eighty snowmobile enthusiasts from across Manitoba will hit the Minnesota trails January 29 – February 3, 2012 for the upcoming the 9th annual Ride for Rehab.
The event is an annual fundraiser for the Children's Rehabilitation Foundation in Winnipeg. It has quickly become the single largest snowmobile event in Manitoba and the largest fund-raising event for the Children's Rehabilitation Foundation, raising $650,000 in the last 8 years.
The five day event will take riders through almost 1,000 km of Minnesota trails. Based out of The Lodge at Giant's Ridge in Biwabik, Minnesota, riders will enjoy comfortable lodging, tasty meals and daily out-trips to surrounding trails.
Spots are still available for interested Riders. Registration fee is $600 and includes 5 nights' accommodations and all meals for Monday to Thursday. Riders must also raise a minimum of $250 in pledges in support of the Children's Rehabilitation Foundation. A new website will make collecting pledges online easier than ever.

A new fundraising component for Ride for Rehab this year is the Raffle. Enns Brothers PowerSports and Triton Trailers has generously donated two 2011 TNT 600 E-Tec Ski-Doo Snowmobiles and one XT10 Triton Trailer with multiple options. Tickets are $20 each or 3 for $50 and available at 477-4587 or here. Draw date is January 9th, 2011.
Funds raised through Ride for Rehab will help fund equipment and adapted recreation program for children living with disabilities and special needs in Manitoba, Nunavut and Northwestern Ontario.
The Ride for Rehab combines determination, good humor and camaraderie, with a compassionate understanding of the needs of families who have children living with special needs. The opportunity to meet new people, experience new trails and all the beauty of Minnesota in the winter, while making a difference in the lives of others makes for a truly unique and memorable event.
