We did it! Your team cycled 140 km to the MS Riding Mountain Challenge finish line because you encouraged us to keep going, and you helped make sure Canadians with MS receive as much support as possible. We couldn’t have done this without our supporters at RRC, and we can’t thank you enough.

You helped us raise $6,392 for MS!

We were the #2 team in Manitoba (the #1 team, Mosaic, had 23 riders and raised $18,380). Why not join us in 2016 and help the team hit #1 next year?

Thank you RRC!

September 12th and 13th, your intrepid Red River Rebel Riders (rrrr…) will be cycling their 12th MS Riding Mountain Challenge (a biker’s dozen). Their goal? Raise another $5,000 for MS! Guy DugasDayna GrahamMichael Poitras, and Deron Warkentin have signed up from the Roblin Campus, and new members Kristen Cameron and Tyler Steiner have joined the team from Notre Dame. This is the call for a few more of you to come on board.

How can you help?

Simple. You can join the team or support us with a donation, or both!

Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. 100% of the money we raise goes directly to MS research and valuable services for families affected by Multiple Sclerosis.

  • Join the 2015 team. It’s a beautiful 150 km round trip ride through Riding Mountain National Park. We drive to Dauphin Friday the 11th after work, cycle Dauphin to Clear Lake the morning of the 12th and back to Dauphin on the 13th, getting back to Winnipeg early that evening. Sign up and train with us through August to get in shape for the big ride! Email Guy Dugas (guy@spright.ca) for details or simply click here and then click on the Join team button.
  • Donate securely online by clicking on any team member’s name at this site. All monies raised go to supporting those suffering with MS or to MS research.

Together we can end MS.

Color Me Rad!

Color Me Rad

It’s official, there is now an RRC team registered for the Color Me Rad run/walk on July 21! What is Color Me Rad? The website has a very “colorful” way to describe what it is….basically you run/walk 5km and throughout are attacked with color bombs. Really for no good reason, other than it’s silly and fun!

All proceeds from the race go to Camp Manitou, and everyone is a winner as this is a fun run/walk. Read More →
