The BMW Motorcycle Owners of America recently presented a check to Motorcycle Relief Project in the amount of $8,112.73. The check represented charitable donations from the MOA's fall Getaway events in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, St. George, Utah, Black River Falls, Wisconsin, Colorado Springs, Colorado and Marble Falls, Texas. Tom Larsen accepted the donation on behalf of Motorcycle Relief Project at a recent fundraising event in Denver, Colorado. BMW MOA Director Stan Herman was on hand to present the check.

The MOA's donation is the result of purchases of silent auction items made by BMW MOA members at each of the the fall Getaway events. The highlights included Kathmandu riding suits from First Gear, Ztechnik windscreens, Glowrider jackets from Adaptiv Technologies, Stop & Go tire kits, Abus Security disc locks, Euro Moto Electrics horn kits, Park 'n Move motorcycle stands, Moto Skiveez apparel and Wolfman luggage.

MOA members placed bids on each of the items graciously donated by MOA suppliers and advertising partners. The MOA also donated 5% of the proceeds from each event to make up the total donation.

Motorcycle Relief project is a registered 501c3 charitable organization that provides relief to veterans with PTSD and other injuries by taking them on multi-day motorcycle adventure tours. MRP's mission is to honor and encourage veterans while providing them with opportunities to decompress, get unstuck, and connect with other veterans. Several recent participants of MRP's adventure tours were present at each Getaway to represent the charity.

The MOA has announced the support for Motorcycle Relief Project will continue at MOA events in 2017.
