Realities Riders Make Every Mile Help A Child!


Realities Ride & Rally Celebrates Freedom by Helping Children in Need.

For the past 16 years, Realities Ride & Rally has been held on Memorial Day Weekend in Fort Collins, CO.  This is where our 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.

This year the clouds parted, the  sun came out and an amazing attendance of over 3,100 Realities Riders came together to become the voice of those children silenced by abuse and neglect and make every mile of this amazing ride help a child in need.  Thank you to everyone who donated to ride with us this year and helping to raise nearly $100,000 for the programs and emergency services of the children we serve!

Special thanks also to all our amazing Sponsors and Volunteers that make this event possible!

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).   

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.
