Dawn Ride

The Dawn Ride is a Charitable Foundation formed by 5 women riders from the BMW Ottawa Club who are raising funds for ovarian cancer research. This is a deadly disease that kills half the women afflicted. You can read more and donate at https://dawnride.akaraisin.com/ui/da...0ac7bb7431e3fc

Or if you’re an Ironbutt follower, they have posted this opportunity:

97 IBR winner Rick Morrison is looking to help another IBR veteran, Jean Copas, with a fundraiser and has asked me to post the info to IBDone. Jean is raising donations for "The Dawn Ride", a fundraiser to boost research into ovarian cancer, and she and Rick are doing so in memory of one of our own-Karol Patzer.

So, Rick´s proposal is this: he is auctioning off 20 of his rally T-shirts on eBary. 15 are from various 1, 2, and 3-day events and are open for sale to anyone. 5 IBR T-shirts from years 95, 97, 99, 01, and 05 size large are also being sold-but only to persons who have finished an IBR, so if yo´re interested in one of those you’ll need to reach out directly to Rick at 425-387-2834 via text or voice.

To see and bid on the 15 shirts go to https://www.ebay.com and search for item # 404342094454. Click on the pic of the shirt to get the full listing, then click the "see other items" link. Or, just used this direct link: https://tinyurl.com/5cx9u7u7.

Again, if you’re a Doner looking to fill in your shirt collection or replace the one you’ve worn out, contact Rick via text or voice at the number listed above.

The auction will run three days and closes Thursday, June 29th at 9pm CST. So far, Jeanhas raised $4367.00 and her goal is $5000.00 so it’s in reach, with your help. Let’s help Jean meet her goal and Rick clean out his closet!”

You can help too! This sale is not just open to Ironbutt Doners, but anyone who wants to help make ovarian cancer history.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
