13th Annual Cruise For A Cure - CMATVA

 Every year in June, 100's of ATV and UTV riders converge on the small town of Renovo, Pa to take part in the Bucktail Medical Centers, Relay for Life's - Cruise for a Cure.

A big shout out goes to the Central Mountains ATV Association (CMATVA) for partnering with Bucktail, the town of Renovo, the DCNR and a slew of state legislators and officials to host this event. In its 13th year, the Cruise for a Cure has raised thousands upon thousands of dollars for cancer research and patients in the central Pa Area.

The Central Mountains ATV Association sets up and manages this ride each year.

Almost from the very beginning the CMATVA partnered with the Bucktail Medical Center to make this ride a realty. The first year hosted 40 riders on ATV's with this years event seeing 250 machines with 350 riders turning out to support this great cause.

Thanks to all that support the event.

Each year this event gets more popular. Along with the riders support, the local and state officials as well as DCNR and industry businesses. They all see the huge impact that off road or ATV / UTV riders can bring to our state. The economic impact is continually growing and its a great way for the citizens of ours and neighboring states to enjoy all the beauty that Pennsylvania has to offer.

The Bucktail Medical Center in rural Pennsylvania is the benefactor of this fundraiser.

The ride maxed out again this year with a total of 250 machines. Riders are broken down into groups and guided along the route from downtown Renovo to the Quiet Oaks Campground in Cross Fork, Pa then led back on an alternate route. This years ride totaled 60 miles and ended with a delicious BBQ Chicken dinner hosted by the South Renovo Fire Co.

Club President Henry Sorgen stopped his group along the ride to reveal where the new connector trail will link up with DCNR's Whiskey Springs riding area by Spring of 2024.

This was just one of many groups that participated in this years Cruise.

If you missed this years ride and would like to donate to the cause, there is still time. There can never be enough money raised to fight this terrible disease. All the funds raised stay local so rest assured your dollars are well spent. Follow the link below if you'd like to help:

I can't say enough about this group and all they have done not only for cancer research but for getting new trail miles established in Pennsylvania. They have also been integral in creating relationships with DCNR, state and local officials and the business owners of PA.
