2014 Ride For The Breath Of Life

On June 14, 2014, the Kinsmen Club of Brandon hosted the “Ride For The Breath Of Life” Motorcycle and Classic Car Ride.

The Ride for the Breath of Life is an annual national motor sports fundraiser in support of Canadians with cystic fibrosis held in locations across Canada.

This year, Mother Nature was not on our side, but the 14 riders who braved the weather supported a great cause. We thank all the riders, volunteers, and everyone who came by to see what we were all about.

The Kinsmen Club of Brandon is raffling a Hot Rod Grill in the summer of 2014. The Hot Rod Grill is a propane BBQ designed and built to resemble a small block engine. The smoke even comes out of the exhaust! It would look great on the patio of any gear head or motor sports enthusiast.

The Kinsmen are selling tickets 3 for $5 at numerous events around Brandon and area. Come see us at the Shoppers Mall, Ride For The Breath Of Life, Travelers Day Parade, Cruisin the Dub, and PASCAR events at the Souris Stock Car Track.
