Help Make a Difference in Colorado by Becoming a Corporate Sponsor !

The last year has been a very difficult and sad time for many Americans across the country. It has taught us that giving of ourselves and helping others should be our highest priority. That is why thousands of Colorado motorcyclists have and will continue to participate in the annual "United Ride of Colorado ©", a special charity event to help those in need in Colorado. On 21Oct2001 over 5,000 bikers of all brands met at Coors Field to donate what turned out to be $39,000 for disaster relief and then paraded around Denver with police escort.

The focus of the event this year is to raise money for the children of Colorado, and we need your help to make it a success! Based on the participation and fundraising efforts of last year's event, the United Ride of Colorado © is hoping to involve 10,000 motorcyclists and generate $100,000 for selected charities through corporate sponsorships covering production costs. By becoming a sponsor for this event, you will have the chance to give back to the community and help several worthy causes including:

Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado™ (40% proceed disbursement)
Colorado Missing Children Task Force (20% proceed disbursement)
Rocky Mountain Christian Riders - "Children Having Children" Drive (20%)
Church in the Wind - family assistance prgm (20% proceed disbursement)

Be a Sponsor
Sponsors for the event will also be recognized by the news media, on our website, in our fliers, at the event and possibly on souvenir T-shirts. Sponsorship levels include the following:

-Platinum over $2,000 (earns booth space)
-Gold $1,000 to 1,999 (earns booth space)
-Silver $500 to $999
-Bronze $250 to $499

Be a volunteer
Don't ride a Harley-Davidson or other motorcycle?
United Ride will have need for hundreds of volunteers the day of the event at Sun MicroSystems. Parking, registration, door prize awards, security, traffic, site set-up, clean up the day of and after. Let one of the organizers know that you or anyone that you know are interested in helping out.

United Ride of Colorado is setting up an independent nonprofit treasury account to insure all donations are given to our selected charities. Full and constant public disclosure will be made. Event organizers have been meeting since November and represent a wide cross section of Colorado riders: HOG Chapters High Country, Colorado, Mile High, Denver, and Greeley. Gold Wing Touring Assoc, Rcky Mtn Christian Riders, Christian M/C Riders, Colorado Free Wheelers, and several ABATE Districts.

The Event - 23June2002
This year, Sun MicroSystems at their spacious picturesque Broomfield facility will host us as our major corporate sponsor. Bands, food, event T-shirts, door prizes for participants and more will be on the agenda. Ride-Ins from outlying and remote towns will be hosted by motorcycle businesses and rider organizations that will converge at Sun MicroSystems at 1:00pm. A parade ride will also depart for those closer to Sun MicroSystems at 10:45 with local celebrities. Cost of entrance is $10 per person and gets you one door prize ticket, a wrist band and an event patch. All vendors are contributing to the charities by either booth fees or partial proceed contributions.
