The 14th annual Brantford Rotary Club snowmobile trip, sponsored by Gates will be held February 23-28, 2014. “The Great Northern Ride” will raise money for the Lansdowne Children’s Centre Foundation and will start from Sudbury and head to Timmins, Hearst, Wawa, Elliot Lake, and end back in Sudbury.

The Lansdowne Children’s Centre is a children’s treatment centre for children with physical, communication and/or developmental needs located in Brantford, Ontario. Lansdowne is a member of the Ontario Association of Children’s Rehabilitation Services (OACRS) and is one of 21 member treatment centres in Ontario. As leaders in community-based services and supports for children, youth and their families, we offer a broad range of quality services.

Gates is involved in this worthy fund raising initiative by sponsoring the ride. The company will also donate G-Force recreational belts for the wide range of snowmobiles that are expected to be on trip.

On December 6, 2013, the Brantford Rotary Club held their annual kick-off luncheon to recognize riders in attendance as well as sponsors. The automotive aftermarket industry “High Five for Kids Foundation” has also generously contributed. Ray Osika, VP Brantford Operations, presented a cheque to the Lansdowne Children’s Centre Foundation in the amount of $2,500 on behalf of the High Five for Kids Foundation.
