It has been discussed and decided that we at Wide Open Sportbikes are going to get involved in this year's charity ride in Ann Arbor for the very good cause of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and make a concerted effort to raise money to benefit this cause. Details of fundraising are still being worked out.
We have also decided that we would like to extend our personal invitation to any and all that may want to get involved at some kind of level to help this cause in an effort to broaden the overall effort and maximize the end result. With that in mind here are brief details:

We at Wide Open Sportbikes feel that this is a very worthy cause and would look forward to your involvement with us. However if you do not want to participate with WOS on this I implore you to consider getting involved on an individual basis, with another club or simply making a donation to this worthy cause. I will have a form available for anyone that wishes to collect donations from their friends, co-workers, relatives, etc. that you can print out and use for this type of individual collection effort. We are still discussing possibilities of other types of fundraisers that would involve some form of group effort and if you would like details on that please feel free to contact me.
Please feel free to send me any ideas, suggestions, comments, past experiences, information to me for consideration in finalizing the details. Your input would be very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you all out there.
