On Sunday 15 October, Counties Honda and Bayleys Counties will get their motors running for a good cause.
They’ve joined forces to arrange a charity motorcycle ride for the Make-A-Wish charity.
The charity grant wishes for children facing life threatening illnesses, giving hope, strength and joy, at a difficult time in their lives. Since inception, Make-A-Wish have granted over 2000 wishes.
Max Mobley from Counties Honda said, that with lots of new motorcyclists in the area, they were keen to start organising a ride community. “We wanted to organise a group ride and thought, let’s make it worth doing and make it a charity ride.”
Max has been tasked with organising the charity ride route. The finalised route will see riders head east through Tahuna and Paeroa and through to Whangamata. A lunch stop at Whangamata is planned and riders will then loop back to Pukekohe via Kopu.
There’s a personal connection for Max, as he has a friend with a son battling leukaemia.
“This feels like a cool way to bring some happiness to kids, who are experiencing a not so happy time in their lives. Money we raise through the charity ride, will make a difference,” said Max.
Riders keen to join the charity ride, can register on Counties Honda Motorcycles’ Facebook page www.facebook.com/Counties.Honda.Pukekohe
