"The issues we face are not black or white but American.
Together we can make a difference.
There is nothing we can't do"
-Terry Hardy, Founder and CEO
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
My thoughts for today are - young people need opportunities and images that showcase their full potential.
There is no greater cause to advocate for using motorcycling as a platform than encouraging the riding community, a subculture to surface on the issue of access to education and careers in support of the next generation in partnership with the community-at-large.
Education is not a black or white issue, but an American issue which we can all come together to help reverse negative trends.
What would it look like if we as a community came together in support of Chicago's youth? Last year our board of directors ratified an agenda toward this end following the input from the participants of the World of Soul® Motorcycle Community Conference Series.
On a national level, motorcycling and the humanities join together in celebration of our country in recognition of the work ahead.
Along America’s roadways are many places of historical significance highlighting historic people, places and events. Once we revisit these places and retell these stories we find that they are just as inspiring today as they were upon inception. These stories say, despite our challenges we have always found ways to move the nation forward.
Therefore, Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE™ is the movement to a World of Soul®, the destination where people are working together breaking down barriers for the common good.
I invite you to join the movement toward demonstrating what a World of Soul® could be and how we can get there in order to help people help themselves.
Today, we are continuing to grow our infrastructure through Riders United to Serve Humanity™, supporting program implementation in local communities by empowering riders with solutions to age-old problems resulting in youth mentoring, support for education and motorcycle safety and training.
This work requires your assistance through outreach, partnerships and financial contributions.
Will you help spread the word, partner with us and/or make a financial contribution?
It is my hope through reviewing our website you will be inspired to make a choice from the above that demonstrates – together all things are possible.
These are my thoughts as of today - subject to modification.
Thank you for considering Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE™ Foundation.
Let the spirit move you to improve you. That's a World of Soul®
With kind regards,
Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE™ Foundation/World of Soul®
