Music Therapy Ride 2018


 The Music Therapy Ride (MTR) brings together prominent members of Vancouver’s business community, music industry, music therapists and motorcycle enthusiasts —all sharing the love of music and providing music therapy to those most in need.

Since 2001, MTR has raised more than $1 million enabling the delivery of 24 music therapy programs and the production of 11 Bandwagons—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.

Music Heals presents the Music Therapy Ride in partnership with Bikers for Autism on August 25th, 2018.

MTR founders Patrick Zulinov, Chris Dunner and Shaw Saltzberg have passed the torch to the Music Heals Charitable Foundation to continue the legacy in 2018.

We anticipate 300 motorcyclists riding up the majestic Sea to Sky raising funds and awareness of the healing powers of music with a special focus on programs for patients on the autism spectrum.
