|Description||Hawgstock Ride for Pink
The Hawgstock Motorcycle Rally is a gathering of bikers that love to ride motorcycles, listen to music, and just have some fun. We enjoy riding motorcycles whenever we can, and we now have a cause behind one of our rides. The first annual Hawgstock Ride for Pink “Bikes for Burgers” run will take place the first weekend of May. This began when a friend asked us to ride 1600 miles for a burger. Some think we are a bunch of “Damn Fools”, but we are gonna do it anyway. Rain or shine and try to raise some donations for cancer awareness. You can get involved and help by riding to any of the 100 stops in the “Hamburger America” book for a great burger, and as they ride help us raise funds for breast cancer awareness. With sponsorships or a donation, bikers can ride 0 to unlimited miles and any proceeds they raise will go toward a good cause. Anyone can donate to the cause as well, even if not on two wheels. Enjoy the weekend, ride, grab a burger, and help a good cause.
Participating is simple. Just wear any pink item of clothing on May 1st, and make a donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We have chosen to raise funds for Komen because, as the leader of the global breast cancer movement, Komen will use our hard earned dollars to further breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs that truly make a difference.
To donate online, please use the link below. In return for your contribution, you'll get a pink ribbon pin and the satisfaction of helping to move us closer to a world free of breast cancer.
We need your help! Please join our team by clicking on the link below and setting a personal fundraising goal. Then send a message to friends, colleagues or family members to ask them to support your efforts in ending breast cancer forever! Any donation, large or small, makes a big impact.
