    I will be riding for two causes in this years HokaHey Motorcycle Challenge.

    www.hokaheychallenge.com

    This thread is part of my effort to raise some coin for those causes.

    The two causes are,
    1) Yavapai County Stand Down, which is put on by USVets. An organization which provides a wide range of services to Veterans. This link highlights their annual event from 2017. They have not put up an announcement for this year.
    Yavapai County Stand Down – U.S.VETS | United States Veterans Initiative

    2) The Comanche tribe that is hosting the Challenge this year.

    I’ve decided to make the N8V generation my Tribal charity. Here is a link to their Facebook page.
    N8V Generation

    The money I raise here and through other Venues will be evenly divided between the two

    Here is how my pledge system works.

    You will, through this thread, pledge whatever amount per mile you like for my highest mileage day of the Challenge. You can pledge a fraction of a cent or whatever you choose.

    Every day at a yet to be determined time I will post a photo of my Odometer. At the end of the Challenge, my highest mileage day (24 hour period) multiplied by the amount of your pledge will determine the amount of your donation.

    As an example say you pledge one penny per mile and my highest mileage day is 957 miles. Your donation would be $9.57.

    Again, your pledge per mile amount is whatever you feel comfortable with and is only for my highest mileage day, be it a penny a mile or $19.99 a mile it is totally up to you.

    EDIT...Once the challenge is completed, I will provide the addresses of the recipients and you can send your donations directly to each one. 56E726C9-FE7D-4E39-B663-DD04BE67D472.jpeg B40363EE-C924-4A85-A9AA-B9CB3857AA8D.jpeg

    Thank you in advance for your generous support.

    Not to be a dick, but how do we verify that the pledged amounts get where they are supposed to go?

    Baldhead_J did bring up a valid point. I guess the best way to insure your pledge gets to the people it should would be for me to simply supply you with the address of the organization’s and you send a check directly to each of them. That will also save me from having to deal with it.

    Good luck with the fundraising Thumper. Are you a wagering man? Want to have a side bet on who raises the most? I will keep my efforts off this forum. Of course it will depend if I get accepted. I haven’t heard back yet.

    Please don’t shy away from fund raising here. It’s about the charity, not who raises the most. Our friendly competition will take place on the roads of the United States.

    I urge you to raise money for your chosen group in any way and anywhere you can Brother.

    That said, PM me and let me know what you have in mind for the side wager.

    If you do get accepted @Papa Lar, post your charity choices back here, I think I can swing sponsoring another Hoka Hey warrior. Respect for you, and everyone else that puts in the time and effort to help those in need.

    If you keep it quiet, how can there be side wagers?

    Well since Thumper was gracious enough to open the door we can be as loud and open as as we like. And the charities get the benefit. I didn’t want to horn in on Thumper’s opportunity to raise cash. I plan on Raising money for iWarriors. It is a smaller charity started by a couple mold building shops a few years back. They raise money to buy iPads for wounded warriors. Check them out on Facebook or Google search. I’m not sure exactly how I will run my fundraising effort’s but I’ll let you all know as soon as I get it figured out. Something similar to thumpers probably. I’m really looking forward to the Hoka Hey. It will be a great personal challenge and hopefully help out some of those who have fought for our freedom’s.
