---- — Laconia Harley-Davidson and New Hampshire Motor Speedway have teamed up to make the 90th Anniversary of Laconia Motorcycle Week even more historic through an effort to raise over $76,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of New Hampshire and set a new Guinness World Record title.
Every New Hampshire Boys & Girls Club will benefit from the money raised in this attempt, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Derry.
Laconia Motorcycle Week attendees and New Hampshire residents will play a key role in this endeavor by purchasing tickets for a Community Appreciation Parade at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on the final Saturday of Bike Week, June 15. Participants will have the unique opportunity to ride around the New Hampshire Motor Speedway track, continue on a police escorted, scenic 32 mile non-stop ride around the Lakes Region and raise significant funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of New Hampshire.
Non-riders can also contribute to this effort by making a donation at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on June 15. Reserve a space for this historic event at newhampshire.speedwaycharities.org.
“The Boys and Girls Clubs, more than any other organization, are working to put all children on a path to meaningful and productive lives. Their programs have a positive impact on the lives of young people and in some cases, have been credited with saving them,” said Anne Deli, owner of Laconia Harley-Davidson.
Laconia Harley, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and the Boys & Girls Clubs of New Hampshire are calling on the public to help break an existing record for “most money raised for a charity in 24 hours by a motorcycle parade.” The current record is $76,036.
Tickets are $35 per bike and $15 for an additional rider. Only 50 VIP tickets will be available for $150, which will enable a rider and passenger to get priority spot in the first 50 spaces behind the pace car. Participants will also receive one free ticket to the Loudon Classic Weekend that evening at NHMS. Individuals and businesses can also contribute to the effort by making a donation of any amount between 7 and 10 a.m. June 15 at NHMS.
