RALLY FOR VITA is organized by a group of seasoned like-minded riders who are committed to safety and enjoyment on the open road. Activities include,  a ride route from Columbus Centre at 901 Lawrence Avenue West, Toronto to Mercedes Benz Barrie at 2440 Doral Drive, Innisfil. This route will be gratifying for both novices and veterans alike and includes a family friendly lunch stop. Registration and breakfast begins at 8:00 am, all riders will depart with police escort at 9:30 am arriving at Mercedes Barrie at approximately 1:30 pm.  There will be music, food beverages, and sweet treats. The show & shine featuring customs, sports, stock cruisers and vintage bikes, a pamel of judges will decide the top 3, which will be featured in the Rally for Vita 2013 calendar.

RALLY FOR VITA's sense of adventure, its style and feel, is enhanced by the cause it stands for: to advocate on behalf of, and to support, the highest priority needs at VITA Community Living Services, a charitable organization that supports individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or serious mental illness.

Last year's Rally raised over $25,000 towards the purchase of the MV-1, the first ever vehicle specifically designed with the mobility needs and social inclusion of wheel chair users in mind. This vehicle was presented to Vita on February 28, 2012 at attended by the Honorable David Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. This year we hope to raise funds to purchase another MV-1.

The ORGANIZING COMMITTEE is working diligently to make the second edition of Rally for Vita bigger, better and more exciting for all riders regardless of experience. The 2012 ride will continue to support Vita and advocate for the mobility needs of those with physical disabilities. Registrations and donations are centralized through www.rallyforvita.com
