Hellwig helps Ride for Kids Fundraiser


The “Ride for Kids” charity which benefits the “Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation” received some generous contributions from the automotive aftermarket industry at the 30th Annual Rovers MC “Boner Run” April13, 2008. The Rovers motorcycle club, which hosts the annual desert motorcycle race, held the charity raffle with the grand prize being a new 2008 KTM 250sx-f dirt-bike.
Melanie White with Hellwig Products, became involved with the fundraiser and put out a call to many of her contacts within the industry. They responded by donating nearly fifty items to be raffled off at the race. Bully donated several hitch and side steps, Sirius donated a set of halogen off-road lights, Genuine Harley-Davidson Motor Accessories also donated a pair of motorcycle fog lamps. MSD Ignition sent a slew of promotional items as well as two sets of their “Super Conductor” spark plug wires. Two of the most sought after items at the raffle were a hitch mounted barbeque generously donated by A.R.E. and a Truxedo gift certificate for a tonneau truck bed cover. Hellwig Products also helped out by donating a “FastRack” motorcycle tie-down rack and a front and rear set of sway bars recently developed for the Yamaha “Rhino” UTV.
Thanks in part to the generous response from the automotive aftermarket industry the “Ride for Kids” raffle was able to raise more than $5000 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Paul Krause, who organized the raffle, reported that the KTM 250sx-f was presented to the grand prize winner Sherri Sweaney with the help of racing legend Malcom Smith.
