Women in the Wind is an international association of female motorcycle riders which was founded by Becky Brown in Toledo, Ohio in 1979. WITW (www.womeninthewind.org) strives to educate members in motorcycle safety and maintenance as well as to promote a positive image to the public of women on motorcycles. Currently there are chapters throughout Canada, the US, and around the globe. Members vary in age, are from all walks of life, and ride various makes and models of motorcycles.
A very exciting event is coming to our province – the largest women-only motorcycle rally held annually in Canada! The group is Women In The Wind (WITW) and the event is the WITW Canadian National Rally.
The National Rally is scheduled for August 12 – 15, 2021 in Moose Jaw, SK proudly co-hosted by the Bridge City Thunder chapter of Saskatoon (www.bridgecitythunder.com) and the Highway Hunnies chapter of Regina (https://witwhighwayhunnies.webs.com/). We look forward to showcasing what Saskatchewan, and particularly Moose Jaw, have to offer - of course, following all health precautions and restrictions regarding Covid 19.
In addition to sharing a love of riding motorcycles, WITW members also consider our alliance as an opportunity for involvement in community fundraising. We are happy to announce the charity of our choice for the August 2021 rally is STARS Saskatchewan! We encourage all our friends and family, both in and out of the motorcycle world, to join our efforts in raising funds for STARS!
Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service (STARS) was founded in 1985 and is a non-profit emergency medical service that provides transportation to the critically ill and injured who live, work or play across Western Canada. STARS can reach remote worksites, rural areas and assist with inter-facility transports to major medical centres. STARS air ambulance operates from six bases in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and has flown more than 45,000 missions since 1985. In 2019, Saskatchewan carried out 884 missions alone. Your support helps STARS be there for the next patient in need. Even in the unfortunate circumstance that the rally is cancelled, all donations will ultimately still go to STARS.
