With a July 9 poker run fast approaching, The Breast Ride Ever is ramping up its activities.

Following Bagging For Boobs and Buckets For Boobs, the event to create cancer-awareness is preparing for its upcoming registration nights. The group also hopes to raise money for medical research.

“The mission of The Breast Ride Ever is to raise awareness about the Windsor and Essex Cancer Centre Foundation and the services of the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County,” said Breast Ride Ever cofounder Nikki Krieger-Campeau.”In addition, we’re trying to raise money for cancer research, diagnostic equipment and Hospice services for the Windsor and Essex Community.”

Taking place on Saturday, July 9 at 10 a.m., the police escorted ride will begin at Lakeshore Cinemas. From there, participants will drive to Thunder Road Harley Davidson, The Original Tecumseh Roadhouse, Meadows by the Lake and Brews and Cues to get their poker cards and food. Finishing by 4 p.m., bikers then meet at the WFCU centre Collavino Hall (8787 McHugh St.) – where a southern barbecue and bands Crystal Gage with Blonde Tango, The Joys, Kevin Jarvis, She’s My Becky, MicLordz and Sauce Funky and The Classix will rock the house until 12 a.m. Prizes will also be awarded.

To participate, bikers and passengers are required to pay $35 and $25 respectively to register. Those raising over $100 in pledges get their fee waived, while earning over $200 gets them a free ride shirt as well – limited to stock and sizes on hand.

Pre-registration can be done on the event’s website or at one of two upcoming registration nights. The Breast Ride Ever crew will be at Tecumseh Roadhouse (10672 County Rd. 42) on June 22 from 6-9 p.m., and Meadows By The Lake (9278 County Rd. 41, RR #5, Harrow) June 28 from 6-9 p.m.
