For the past 16 years, Realities Ride & Rally has been held on Memorial Day Weekend in Fort Collins, CO.  This is where the 'biking' community comes together to honor all those Americans in military service who gave all, so that we may celebrate freedom.  Their sacrifice is honored by enjoying the freedom of the ride - and by coming together for the common cause of bringing hope to local children who have been abused, neglected or who are at risk.


It’s an event unlike any other in Northern Colorado - and the Realities Ride has become the single largest Poker Run in the entire world (as substantiated by the Guinness Book of World Records and Elite World Records in 2013).   Even more impressive is the fact that this group of thousands of 'Realities Riders' and community attendess raise over $100,000 annually in Emergency Funding for children in Northern Colorado who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk.

This Ride has grown into an amazing 2-day Community Rally, and this year we are excited to announce that our friends at Hot Cars Cool Nights will be joining us in our efforts to reach further in service for those in need by making this amazing Classic Car show part of the Realities Rally.  This family friendly event invites everyone in our community to attend - bikers, classic car lovers and great music lovers alike. Bringing together the appreciation for veterans and those who gave all for our freedom, and the desire to help children who have been silenced by abuse. Join us this Memorial Day Weekend in celebration of freedom, of our service men and women, of veterans who served our country, in thanks to those who sacrificed all, and in an overall effort to serve children who have been abused or neglected. 100% of the proceeds raised at this event go directly to the children served by Realities For Children Charities Emergency Funding.
