A New Start

Marks a New Start for Rally for Vita

Dear Friend of Rally for Vita,

The first thing that you'll notice is that our background image is a running shoe and not a motocycle. No mistake! It was done intentionally. Throughout history, the 7th year of any event, function or partnership is ordinarily the transitional year and Rally for Vita is no exception. As such, the rally has undergone a transformation of sorts: that is, we're leaving our motorcycles in that garage and opting for running shoes - yup, runners sneakers, high cuts, etc., - you know what we mean. Truth be told, we want to extend our reach to include more members, families, and staff. And, your participation is warranted more than ever! We have a beautiful day scheduled, chock-full of eats, drinks and good times.

Register now for the 3K or 5K run, walk, skip, hop, - we won't judge, so long as you register. The routes are designed for all skill levels, whether you're a first-time entrant or a seasoned triathlon athlete.

Grab some friends and join us at Rally for Vita.

We realize that we earn the trust of those in our care every day. We have been successful in creating a structure that minimizes hierarchy and maximizes communication.
To help us achieve excellence, the members of Vita's Self-Advocacy Group provide feedback and offer helpful critiques of our care.

We are here to welcome and serve, to listen with our eyes and our hearts, and to honour the trust given to us by individuals with disabilities and by their families.
