Bikers are average people that you will find across every spectrum of society.  Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE Foundation establishes a platform to move forward their positive efforts to reverse negative  images and trends.  As an organization, we recognized young people need opportunities that showcase their full potential.

How to help

Spread the word.  Connect with Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE Foundation though a series of programs, services and events that encourage a paradigm shift in values and performance.  

Issues and Images

Join with us.  Reconciling issues call for reconciling images placed upon society using people least expected to become engaged on issues important to the community. Together we can demonstrate to the next generation that our generation made sense by putting in place that which was absent.  Collaborate.


Access to Opportunity

Fuel the effort.  Combine resources with us through partnerships, grants, sponsorship, membership and contributions to fund programs that not only impact Chicago, but the nation, and yes, even the world.


Board members recently engaged participants of the 29th Annual BiketoberFest in Daytona, Florida to reach riders to demonstrate goodwill by introducing the new Riders United to Serve Humanity brochure and giveaway 2009 Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE patches, have conversations and get feedback, identify RUSH candidates and potential partners.  Our heart-filled thanks and  appreciation goes out to the owners of Bruce Rossmeyer Harley-Davidson for making our presence possible.

Current project

Coalition Building. Collaborating with community organizations, institutions and governmental agencies with the support of elected officials, other foundations and commercial interest to increase the amount of college tours departing Chicago in route to Historically Black Colleges and Universities.


We aim to combine resources to increase the amount of college tours departing Chicago in a manner unprecedented to encourage a paradigm shift on the perceived value of education.

Growing the World of Soul Motorcyclist Association is essential to create a base of support on issues that matters - Youth mentoring and education.

"Despite our challenges we have always found ways to move America forward."
