The Ride for Hope
May 16th, 2009
Wheels of Hope is an association that was formed in 2005 to raise money to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. We have several members in our group that are avid motorcyclists and that are also cancer survivors or have been affected by cancer in some way. As a group we decided that we wanted to start raising money to fund research to find a cure for this awful disease. So we combined our two passions together and decided to organize a non-alcoholic motorcycle ride that goes to area churches instead of the normal “poker run” locations. All riders and the community at large are invited to a hog roast at the completion of the ride where we have an auction and give out door prizes. All proceeds are then donated to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
This is where your organization comes in. We are writing to you to request merchandise from your franchise to auction off for the benefit of raising more money or to give to our riders as appreciation for their support. In the past 2 years our organization has donated over $30,000.00 to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life from our benefit ride. This year we would like to match that number in a single ride. If you would be willing to donate any products and/or autographed materials we would appreciate it.
Thank you for your time in reading this letter. If you have any other questions about our organization or any other topics please call one of the above numbers and someone will be glad to help you.

I have donated a “Hope” bracelet for the cause, and am trying to finish up more items, but don’t know if I will get them out in the mail in time or not…. Keeping my fingers crossed to help with the cure!
