Registration open for Women's MDA motorcycle run in Daytona 2009

December 20th, 2008

For the female motorcycle enthusiast in your life, the perfect present may be as close as a free online registration.

Last year in Daytona Beach, Florida hundreds of women riders joined together on the Harley-Davidson Daytona Women's Day Ride and raised $67,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). In anticipation of next year's ride registration for the 2009 ride on Tuesday, March 3, is now open with a limited number of spots available for women riders.

The Women's DaMDa Motorcycley Ride, designed to celebrate women riders, as well as generate funds for the MDA, is open to the first 500 eligible female Harley-Davidson or Buell riders who register at Harley-Davidson's website before Friday, Feb. 13, 2009. Aside from riding together through the streets of Daytona, participating women riders are also encouraged to secure pledges and donations from their families and friends, which will be used to support the MDA's Summer Camp programs across the country. For nearly 30 years, the Harley-Davidson family of dealers, employees, riders and suppliers has helped raise more than $65 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

"Last year the Women's Day Ride was a huge success," said Leslie Prevish, Women's Outreach Manager, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. "Riding down the road with hundreds of women riders was truly inspirational, and more importantly, we raised $67,000 for MDA. Hopefully this year, with the support of our generous female riders, as well as their friends and family, we'll easily eclipse that mark."

All participating riders will receive a 2009 MDA pin, as well as an MDA/Harley-Davidson bike flag. The top three fundraisers among the group will receive a Harley-Davidson jacket, and every rider who raises at least $600 will receive a special 2009 MDA Women's Day Ride sterling silver charm.
