After Papa Joe lost his battle with cancer in 1993, eight of his buddies got together a year later and rode their bikes in his memory. With this simple gesture, they began what would be the largest organized motorcycle ride in North-eastern Ontario.

Since 2000, the Ride has raised over $134,000 toward the new hospital’s chemo unit as well as for needed medical equipment such as a chemo hood, a colonoscope and a tympanic thermometer. The waiting area in the Cancer/Chemo unit of the new hospital will be dedicated to Papa Joe. Proceeds of this year’s ride will be going to the North Bay and District Hospital Foundation for cancer care.
