Peel's Ride for the Breath of Life

Join us for Peel's Ride for the Breath of Life! 

The Ride for the Breath of Life is an annual motorcycle fundraising event in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada at which Riders from all backgrounds band together to help change the face of cystic fibrosis from one of despair to one of hope. 

Funds raised through the Ride for the Breath of Life support life-changing cystic fibrosis research, clinical care and advocacy. This support has resulted in outstanding progress in the quality of life for Canadians with cystic fibrosis. 

With your help, we are getting even closer to finding a cure for this devastating disease. However, while we have achieved enormous gains in quality of life and life expectancy, we still lose precious young lives to cystic fibrosis every day. Join us at a Ride for the Breath of Life in your community!

Have a safe and fun Ride!

Of the Canadians with cystic fibrosis who died in 2013, half were under 35 years of age. Cystic fibrosis occurs when a child inherits two defective copies of the gene responsible for cystic fibrosis (one from each parent). Cumulatively, CF patients spent over 24,500 days in hospital and attended over 16,500 clinic visits in 2013.
