History of the beginings

The Comox Valley Jeep Club was created in 2012 with just a few members who loved to get out there and have fun exploring our area. The club kept growing and in that time they had tons of mod nights, took part in parades and encouraged positive trail standards and etiquette. Fundraising was a big part of everyone’s goals; Jeepoween, Jeepmas and then in 2015 the idea of getting others to come from all over BC to camp, wheel, make friends and raise money for something that touches us all, Cancer! One of the founders of the Comox Valley Jeep Club, named Larry, started to take part in the Ride to Conquer Cancer, taking him on a single speed bike from Vancouver to Seattle. His reason for no gears on his bike was so he could feel more connected to those fighting the big fight and the pain they encounter. We all wanted to help him raise as much as he could. Jeepapalooza was an idea that has become an amazing reality! In 2014 we held our first event. We were awestruck on how many strangers, with only one passion in common, came together for a wicked campout with trails, BBQ, prizes, and became new friends! With only about 36 Jeeps we raised about $3800.00. Word got out on how much fun it was and it’s only grown now year after year. West Coast Jeeps has partnered up with us on this incredible journey. We continue on with excellent repeat attendees, volunteers, contributors, sponsors and product donations. The pride in working together for a cause that will affect someone we love, meeting new friends, and getting out there exploring has made so many memories! We can't wait to make more! Thanks to you we’ve raised just over $30,000 in 2018, making it a record event.  We can't wait to see everyone again, plus some new faces, in 2019!!
