History Of The Sea To Sky ALS Rally

In the spring of 2019, the idea of combining two completely unrelated communities with a shared goal of boosting awareness for ALS was born. With just 3 months of preparation, the organization hosted its first event from Cypress Mountain to Whistler, raising $72,000. Piggybacking off the success from year one, the ALS Rally team has grown each year and pushed the rally’s vision to new heights. Going into 2024, we have refined the ALS Rally experience to be one of the leading rallies in British Columbia, combining all the best parts of previous rallies into one day, jam-packed with a curated automotive experience.


Where Do All The Donations Go?

All the donations are allocated directly to the ALS Project Hope. The funds will be used to help invest in research for a cure, along with helping to facilitate drug trails in British Columbia.

Scaling Up The Event

For the second year of the event, we expanded and brought the rally all the way up to the Pemberton airstrip for a 1/4mile drag race, food truck, raffles, and much more. We also chose to direct the funds raised in 2020 towards establishing the new ALS Center of Hope at the UBC campus. Despite the pandemic, we hosted another extremely successful event bringing our total amount raised over the past two years to just over $50,000. Unfortunately, due to the wildfires and the state of emergency imposed by the provincial government in early August, we were left with no choice but to postpone the 2021 rally. The event has been recognized both years by ALS BC as they have awarded the ALS Rally: Volunteer of the year award (2019) and top third party fundraiser (2020).

Aidan Bate-Smith
Since I can remember I have had a passion for anything automotive related. During my early years, each Christmas my parents would buy me the annual Dupont Registry and immediately I would start memorizing the engine specs to all my favourite super cars. Those that know me well understand that no matter the importance of the conversation, if any type of car I find interesting drives by, our conversation will end abruptly
followed by an avalanche of facts about said car. That passion has stayed with me through my early 20’s and allowed me to meet incredible members of the car community, which has in turn made my fundraiser so successful. With my fathers diagnosis in 2019 I wanted to create an incredibly fun event but also a symbol for those diagnosed in the ALS community to visually see the support they have.
