A Build-Off for Charity
Indian Motorcycle and Motorcycle Missions have teamed up to put together a motorcycle therapy bike build off. The two teams participating come from Texas. One is from Dallas and the other from Austin. Veterans and first responders fill both teams. The proceeds from the build off will go to Motorcycle Missions. The non-profit helps veterans and first-responders who are in need.
Both teams will have a chance to take the Indian Motorcycle’s Chief Dark Horse to craft their own build. The build off features no restrictions terms of customization to the donated bikes. Krystal Hess, Motorcycle Missions Founder said that the mission behind the initiative is to help veterans and first responders live happy and healthy lives.
Whether riding or wrenching, Motorcycle Missions bring veterans and first responders together as they work towards one common goal. The trials and tribulations, camaraderie, and life-long friendships are what ‘motorcycle therapy’ is all about.
The teams have until April 12 to reveal their unique builds. The bikes will make their debut at John Paul DeJorias and Gary Spellman 17th annual Peace Love Happiness charity weekend, which benefits The 100 Club of Central Texas. The 100 Club is a non-profit focusing on first responders. It provides financial and emotional assistance to the families involved.
Reid Wilson, Senior Director for Indian Motorcycle, said that the company was impressed by Motorcycle Missions and their passion for bringing positive change to people’s lives through motorcycles and motorcycling. “It truly is an incredible program and we’re proud to support Motorcycle Missions and the veterans and first responders who have put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms,” Wilson said.
