Ride for MRI / CGHS Foundation Fundraiser (2019)

What a Fabulous Day!

On September 14, 2019, Dufferin Grey ATV Club (DGATV) happily hosted a charity ride for Centre Grey Health Services Foundation with the assistance of Volunteers from Grey Highlands Fire & Emergency Services who provided a hot lunch. Riders brought in $1,350 in donations, which DGATV matched for a total of $2,700 going directly towards the new MRI machine for Owen Sound Hospital.

We had 50 machines out and our ride was approximately 80 kms, which was completed with no incidents or bad weather. Fun was had by all and and it was nice to see not just familiar faces but some new ones too!

We want to thank everyone who came out, and those who helped but were unable to be with us. Many items were donated and our raffle seemed to go on forever with some great donations from local businesses and supporters.

Thanks again to all our Directors, Wardens and Members for the hard work in putting together these rides, and thanks to all our Landowners, Sponsors, Supporters, and Riders. We have just as much fun putting on the events as you do coming to them!

Hope to see you all at the next one!


Our Directors Say …


Great work by all the executives of DGATV on our MRI ride today. Over 50 machines participated in the ride and generously donated $1,350 to help in the purchase of a new MRI unit for Grey Bruce Health services. The club then matched that donation which enables us to make a total donation of $2,700.

We also had Grey Highlands firefighters bbq lunch for the riders which raised $400 for them.

Our club members and guest riders are some of the most generous people around and are always willing to support our community!

And lastly, my grandson Brecken came along to help us run the event and won a door prize, which turned out to be one of his favorite things, tools! What an awesome day and ride!
