About the Ride

Our inaugural Motorcycle “Ride for Dreams” Poker Run will take place on Saturday June 8th 2019 and all net proceeds from this event are directed to the Dreams Take Flight Ottawa chapter to cover the cost of our flight. With your help, we can make dreams come true for all these deserving children!

Message from the President

Dreams Take Flight is a 100% volunteered base national non-profit organization created in 1989. A group of Air Canada employees in Toronto organized a trip that took 70 special needs children on board a DC-9 aircraft to Walt Disney World in Florida.

Fast forward to 1997, when the charity expanded to service eight cities across this great country; Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax each take a plane load of deserving kids to either Disneyland or Disney World for a once in a life time adventure.
