We are looking forward to a joint celebration of horsepower fighting Muscular Dystrophy.

Ride For Doug will take it's traditional a winding ride through the back roads of Langley, Abbotsford and Mission. The ride covers approximately 200km and includes 2 rest stops along the way. We like to say the flavour of the ride is "Sportbike roads at a cruiser pace".

A big part of Ride For Doug is the cheering crowd. as we leave on the ride. RFD 2024 can do this again!


Please come join us and mingle with Doug and all the riders in the parking lot before the ride. Bring a picnic lunch and have a picnic on the lawn. Watching all the bikes leave the lot at once is a powerful metaphor for the support Doug's family receives at this event.


If you are at the Show and Shine - watch for our return. We will be rumbling back into the lot at around 5:15 pm. We can cheer and celebrate a successful ride together.


RFD needs dozens of volunteers to make it happen. Join our team and be part of this year's successful ride. There are a wide range of jobs for everyone.


We're excited to have a combined Celebration BBQ for both RFD and Show and Shine for MD. Hear what your donations are doing, and catch up with old friends that you haven't seen in a couple of years. This Celebration is open for everyone. If you aren't riding with us, please come in time to check out the Show and Shine, and join in the celebration!


Celebration and Program is by donation - either online or at the event. Please register in advance so we know how much food to buy! (if you forget to register please still come)


Celebration BBQ start - 5:30pm


Ride For Doug has a sister ride on Vancouver Island. It too raises money for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Donate to Ride For Doug

Over the first 17 years of Ride For Doug, you have helped raise over $325,000 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. This money has supported research, and funded equipment for Muscular Dystrophy patients. You have additionally raised over $50,000 for special projects for Doug himself. (such as the Stair Lift Project in 2016, and towards the vehicle he we purchased in 2022) Thank you.

These links will be available for a short time post-ride if you still want to donate.

Who does Ride For Doug Support


At Ride For Doug you get to choose where your support goes.


One option is to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada. This organization assists families of those in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy. By selecting the GIVE TO MDC button, you will be helping with this key organization.


A second option is to support special projects for Doug's family. RFD has helped Doug with several large funding gaps in healthcare. At this point in time, there is not a specific piece of equipment needed, but as his mobility changes, Doug will need further equipment and accessibility renovations.


Regardless of which option you choose, we feel your support. Thank you.

Donate to Get Doug an accessible living space


Last year, we raised money so that Doug could safely be a passenger at Mission Raceway Park's 1/4 mile strip. He races his 2006 Dodge Charger RT in the Street Legals class. Thanks!



As Muscular Dystrophy progresses, Doug is needing more and more equipment to lift him, and renovations to make his space accessible. This year we are raising money towards moving Doug into our basement suite through a bathroom reno and some lift installation. Every dollar helps. Let's get Doug into an accessible living space where he can experience more independence.


These donations are NOT tax deductible
