The fifth annual Cruise For Your Cause will be taking place on Saturday.

Organizer Travis Bowering is inviting anyone with a unique automobile to dust off the cobwebs and get an early start to the cruising season.

The cruise will start at the B.C. Kidney Foundation headquarters in Burnaby at 4940 Canada Way.

Meet time will be at 9:00 a.m. and the cruise will depart at 9:30 a.m. sharp.

The cars will then travel through Vancouver, Delta and Mission, ending the tour at the Justice Institute of British Columbia Fire Training Centre at 13500 256th Street in Maple Ridge.

There will be a free barbecue lunch for everyone who registers and prizes.

Bowering started the cruise in memory of his father, Larry, whose love of cars helped him through his 28-year struggle with kidney disease.

Registration is free for the event but Bowering has started a GoFundMe account and is looking for donations to help with the costs.

Registrants can pick the charity that they want to raise money for.
