THE RIDE, powered by Mattamy Homes, is ten years strong! Together our community has surpassed $13 million for world- first research at The Ottawa Hospital. 

2019 will be an exceptional year as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of THE RIDE! When you DO THE RIDE, you’ll take health care in Ottawa to new heights and you’ll continue to make The Ottawa Hospital shine as a world leader!   

Why DO you RIDE?

Together, we RIDE for all the mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers who are faced with devastating diseases.

We DO THE RIDE to provide the tools needed to find new treatment options and cures to some of the most complex healthcare issues.

We DO THE RIDE to support the world-class research taking place right
here at The Ottawa Hospital.  It 100% will change the lives of patients
who desperately need our help. 

We RIDE to meet new friends, laugh and exercise.

We RIDE to make our community feel like one big family.

This is why we DO THE RIDE.
