Diggin' the Digital 

We didn't know what it would mean to pivot the 10th Annual Branch Out Bike Tour to a virtual event.  We're floored and humbled by your continued optimism and support.

You've raised over $40,000!

As Branch Out's largest fundraising event of the year, the funds raised directly support much-needed research across Canada to help those living with neurological disorders.  

The final Endurance Loop Challenges take place from August 1 - 23, 2020.  There is still time to get involved, ride and donate to your friends!  Click below to register or learn more.
