The generosity of the motorcycle community has demonstrated itself over and over again. Riders recently came through once more, helping Dairyland Cycle raise $13,553 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) at the 35th annual Tomahawk Fall Ride in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.
“It’s wonderful being partners with all of the riders,” said Lauren Nelsen, MDA fundraising coordinator. “They are such a generous group of people. It’s a great partnership.”
Donations to the MDA help fund research to drive the development of treatments and cures against muscle-debilitating diseases. The donations are also used to support care centers, summer camps, and support groups, according to Nelsen.
Dairyland Cycle, the primary sponsor of the Tomahawk Fall Ride, spearheaded the donation drive and provided official Fall Ride T-shirts to attendees who donated to the MDA during this year’s event. In the past three years, Dairyland Cycle has raised nearly $40,000 for the MDA at the Tomahawk Fall Ride. The support brings strength, independence, and life to kids and adults who are fighting these life-threatening diseases.
