Motorcycle ride supports UofA Foundation

Posted on June 22, 2015

The Automotive Aftermarket Riders’ Club (AARC) will take its annual “Ride for the Future” to Death Valley to raise funds for the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.

Sponsors and pledges for the ride are needed, and all proceeds of the event benefit the foundation.

“We invite all industry professionals to join us for an exciting ride for a phenomenal cause," says Bill Maggs, lifetime trustee of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. "We’ll be cruising through some of the most legendary land in the country, supporting industry education at the same time. This year we hope to set a fundraising record for the ride, so if you can’t join us, please consider supporting a rider or making a donation to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.”

The 2015 AARC “Ride for the Future” will start from the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson dealership on Thursday, Oct. 29 and head to Furnace Creek Resort at Death Valley National Park in California. Riders will have two full days to explore the park before returning to Las Vegas on Saturday, Oct. 31 with a scheduled arrival time of 6:30 p.m.

“What could be better than two days in Death Valley followed by Halloween night in Las Vegas?” asks Mike Mohler, vice president of National Pronto Association. “The ‘Ride for the Future’ is a great time and worthy cause. We are always looking for new riders or sponsors, so please contact me to get involved.”

Motorcycles can be rented from the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson dealership with an advance reservation. For more information or to learn how to become a rider or sponsor, contact Mohler at mikem@pronto-net.com or visit the AARC Facebook page. To make a donation directly to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, call (816) 584-0511.

A pledge form is available here.
