2019 Viessmann Ride for Comfort

The Viessmann 2019 Ride for Comfort is a charity initiative motorcycle ride to raise money in support of Lookout Housing and Health Society.
Viessmann has been providing people all over the world with home heating comfort for over 100 years. In the knowledge that such comfort is not always guaranteed, we are especially happy to dedicate this year's Viessmann Ride for Comfort motorcycle ride in support of Lookout Housing and Health Society.

Lookout Housing and Health Society is a Vancouver-based charitable organization and social safety net, providing a range of support services to adults with low or no income. The organization operates shelters, transitional, independent and permanent supportive housing, drop-in resource centres, outreach, and health services from 32 sites located in 11 municipalities in British Columbia.

Support the tour

Until September 8, you can sponsor riders on their 2019 charity rally. Let's help Lookout Housing and Health Society in providing basic and essential services to those that need it the most.
