Each team is raising funds for the charity of their choice including Riders for Health, Ride for Kids (Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation), Roadracing World Air Fence Fund, and more.

“This is a very unique event and it really hit home for us” says James Walker, Producer of Why We Ride. “We attended some of their riding clinics and love the fact that they are for adults, kids and they even have one just for women which is one of the fastest growing groups in motorcycling.”

Bryan H. Carroll, Producer/Director of Why We Ride commented that “once I heard about the 24hour charity race we wanted to be a part of it. When you can align learning to ride, having fun with friends and families and raising money for the charity of your choice? That’s what the Why We Ride community and brand are all about.”

Team Jedi Knights, one of the endurance teams entering the M1GP24 consists of racers of all ages veterans and new, including Ethan Carroll, son of Bryan Carroll.  The team will be raising funds and awareness for Ride for Kids – The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

We are all different. We look different, we talk different, we believe different things. But none of that matters because  we are motorcyclists. And motorcyclists are a different breed of human altogether. We set aside our differences and we celebrate life on two wheels. We are compassionate. We are caring. We are eager to give help to those that need it.

This holiday season we’ve partnered with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. As a motorcyclist, you may be familiar with their fundraising program Ride for Kids. The PBTF uses programs like Ride for Kids to raise money to support families afflicted by this disease, and they also fund research aimed at ending this disease once and for all. Now through the end of the year, $5 from every DVD sold here on our website will be donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

We have an opportunity for you. You have the power to make a difference in people’s lives, people that are close to you, people you’ve never met. With this fundraiser, you can make an impact in two ways. Share your passion with your friends or your family. Buy them a DVD, or lend them your copy, and show them why motorcycling is so important to you. And as an added bonus, for each copy we sell, we’re making a $5 donation to the PBTF. This holiday season, give the gift of motorcycling passion AND help make a difference by supporting the PBTF. And if you’d simply like to make a direct donation to the PBTF, click here.
