The Iron Society steps up to boost Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre

Iron Society has Big Heart for giving back

Every fall for the last 7 years, a group of motorcycle riders drive up to the main entrance of Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre with a cheque in hand.
It’s a trip the members of Iron Society IRC look forward to every year, when they hand over the funds raised from their annual Big Hearts Charity Ride in July.
Since 2012, the Big Hearts Charity Ride has donated proceeds from their poker run to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre’s neonatal intensive care unit.
“We’ve all got kids. Let’s support local, our hospital needs help,” says Randy Hellmer. “When we sat down as a group of friends, we did a lot of research. The Foundation was one that kept coming back to us. Every dollar that we donate to the hospital goes to purchase equipment.”
Last summer, over 50 riders travelled more than 250 kilometres across Central Alberta. The ride attracts participants from all over and is family friendly and is not limited to just motorbikes. It’s not uncommon to see a couple of classic cars show up.
Iron Society IRC is a small but mighty group of 16 members that love giving back to the community. In addition to their annual Big Hearts ride, the group does a number of other charity events and supports other community causes. They love giving back to the community.
July 2020 is the 8th year for the Big Hearts Charity Ride: “When it comes to fundraising, the motorcycle community is very generous. It’s great to see people come out”.
