How will your donation be spent?
Our budget targets 80% of our funds to provide direct services to rehabilitation hospitals, VA Hospitals, and individuals. Your donation funds one-on-one motorcycle therapy sessions for a patient in rehabilitation, whether an inpatient at a hospital or an out-patient at a clinic. Your contribution provides an experienced rehab/rider coach, an assistant, and travel expenses. Currently, the administration costs are minimal: a home office and small storage unit rental for the equipment. There is no tax return information on file as this is our first year of operation.

We have received a grant from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF).
However, the grant was for the SMARTrainer motorcycle equipment only, not for operational expenses. That’s why we need your help to keep this unique motorcycle therapy program on the road — serving those in need at VA Hospitals, rehabilitation clinics and long term care facilities. 

What I have done on my own so far.
I have invested several months of research, consulting with medical professionals, as well as veterans and motorcyclists about program ideas and options. With that input and my experience in therapeutic recreation and motorcycling, I put together a program that includes supporting documentation to show the program’s progress. I have self-financed the initial startup costs, the costs associated with the MSF certification process, and the cost of developing rehab modifications for the equipment.

The pilot program has been a great success.
We have been providing a volunteer pilot program at the NC Veterans Home in Black Mountain, NC. Contact Activity Director Amy Ferguson amferguson@pruitthealth.com to hear how the program has been going. I myself have seen our weekly motorcycle club develop into a great time — everybody rides, laughs, and tells stories. It has been inspiring to me and fuels my passion for this program to see such a positive response.

Other facilities are interested in the program, but I need operating funds.
Facilities are not charged any fee for the program. The program relies solely on donations from the public. The Board, the MSF, and the participating facilities all provide oversight of the program operations.

Please donate to support this unique motorcycle therapy program.
