It goes something like… bring canned goods to the post office. Or a notice in your inbox as it swells up with requests. As people talk up a cause, send Facebook requests and use testimonials to solicit your participation and ask that you give.
In the northwest, charity events ranging from runs, to bicycle events to climbing Mt. Hood all start ramping up in the spring. Even motorcycle enthusiasts are called to participate in various charity rides. Sure motorcycle charity rides can be something of a grind at times. The days start early, there can be dicey weather, the routes can be stressful and fuel stops can be chaotic. But, that’s why on Saturday, June 4th it will be a genuine treat to join Mike Durbin (Paradise H-D) for the 2nd annual CCA Joyride which supports the Children’s Cancer Association.
Most everyone likes to help out where there is a need and this is especially true when it comes to children who can’t help themselves. The ride will start at Paradise H-D (Tigard) and take off for Pacific City on the coast at 10am. I hope you’ll consider joining this charity ride which has great Oregon scenery and is well organized by the pro’s at Paradise H-D.
Besides. Riding for a good cause just makes you smile!
