Harley-Davidson riders are known world-wide for their ability and commitment to raise funds for worthy causes and Wisconsin Harley-Davidson and the Rock River H.O.G. Chapter are on the top of that list.
Since 1995, the Rock River Chapter, H.O.G. and Wisconsin Harley-Davidson our sponsoring dealership have hosted the annual September event “Ridin’ to a Cure”.
The beginnings were tough, we had no manuals and no “How to Raise Money” books. For volunteers, we tapped the biggest and best resource you can when you belong to a Harley Owners Group, our HOG Chapter, The Rock River. With the help from our great group members, we all pulled together, and to all of our surprise, this ride became an annual event and took off in a big way!
Fundraising began in 1995 with the first “pledge ride” motorcycle riding event that traveled a scenic route through Southeastern Wisconsin ending with food, music, prizes and a live auction for the participants.
On September 24, 1995 over 500 riders participated in the event and over $49,000.00 raised. That was the most money ever raised by any Dealership/Chapter for a one-day event and it was only our first year. Today, 19 years later, thanks to you, we have surpassed the $4,000,000.00 (yes, four million dollar) mark, now working on $5,000,000.00.
Betty Boop® joins us every year on the ride. How? She is on the coveted bandanna participants get with their minimum $40.00 pledge. This is the only time you will see Betty Boop on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you may see her on a motorcycle but look closer… it’s not a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
People always ask, “Why are you doing this?" “Because we can… because we can make a difference”.
We must unlock the secrets of breast cancer. Because of the dreadful toll this disease takes, this stand we make together will increase the hope and survival of someone close in our lives.
Pick up your pledge packet today from Wisconsin Harley-Davidson or ask any Rock River Chapter member for one.
All event proceeds are donated to the Rock River Cancer Research Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
