BETHESDA, MD. (July 12, 2016) — The Automotive Aftermarket Riders' Club's (AARC) annual Ride for the Future will wind its way from Las Vegas to Prescott, Ariz., and back during a three-day excursion benefitting University of the Aftermarket Foundation.
The foundation, an operating unit of Northwood University, provides scholarships and grant funding to support educational opportunities that breed a stronger aftermarket workforce.
Ride for the Future will start at the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson dealership on Oct. 27 and follow Old Historic Route 66, before heading north along the Colorado River the following day. On Oct. 29, riders will have the chance to travel to the Grand Canyon, where they will visit Skywalk — a horse shoe-shaped. cantilevered glass walkway extending 70 feet from the rim of the Grand Canyon and overlooking a 2,000-ft. drop — before returning to Las Vegas.
AARC seeks riders, sponsors and pledges for the ride and plans to donate all proceeds to the foundation.
“We invite all aftermarket professionals to join us for an exciting ride. If you can't join us, please consider supporting a rider and making a donation to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation,” said Bill Maggs, master automotive aftermarket professional (MAAP), treasurer of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation and leader of the pack.
Motorcycles are available for rent from the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson dealership with an advance reservation.
To make a donation directly to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, contact Barbara Cunningham, MAAP, administrator, at [email protected] or call 816-584-0511.
