The rainy conditions on the Sea to Sky Highway are not ideal for a motorcycle trip today, but that’s not stopping 150 people from taking part in the 15th annual music therapy ride in support of the power of music healing.
The event kicked off this morning at the Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby.
Riders donned their rain gear to brave the trip to Whistler.
The group has raised nearly a million dollars so far.
The ride is a local charity event that brings together prominent members of Vancouver’s music industry, music therapists and supporters.
Since 2001, the ride has raised more than $850,000 enabling the delivery of 24 music therapy programs and the production of 11 Bandwagons, which are innovative mobile recording studios used by therapists at care facilities including B.C. Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House and Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
