Holiday Gift in Any Denomination

The Motorcycle Relief Project Donation

How about a holiday gift for an amazing cause? People speak of the dangerous aspects of riding and the possibility of being hurt. But many of us also know the healing power of motorcycling and the motorcycle community. The Motorcycle Relief Project (MRP) has harnessed this in an incredible way, using adventure riding and training as a means to help veterans and first responders who suffer from PTSD gain skills to improve their lives.

Since 2017 MRP has had a women’s-only program as well. This year’s first woman’s ride will be in Tucson, Arizona, April 17-21. The program is still open for attendees who could benefit. We would love to suggest making a donation to MRP in the name of a friend or loved one this holiday season. Every small donation helps, and you may be changing lives of those who really need it. Give a holiday gift in any amount you choose today at MotoRelief.org.
