During this year’s 69th Annual Daytona Bike Week, hundreds of female motorcycle enthusiasts and Harley-Davidson Motor Company are banding together to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and their efforts to find a cure for neuromuscular disease. On Tuesday, March 2, 2010, the MDA and the Motor Company will host the 3rd Annual Harley-Davidson Women’s Ride.
Harley-Davidson Motor Company and its family of customers, dealers, employees and suppliers have raised $4.5 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in 2009, the company announced on the annual Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon. The 2009 contribution brings Harley-Davidson’s cumulative fundraising for MDA since 1980 to more than $73 million.
Harley-Davidson Motor Company Executive Vice President of Product Planning, Jim McCaslin, presented a check on behalf of those who raised funds for MDA.
