- Motorcycle Missions is a nonprofit that helps Veterans and First Responders with PTS(D) find hope and healing through motorcycle therapy. At Motorcycle Missions they understand much of the post-traumatic stress (disorder) paradigm is that the need for purpose, camaraderie, and adrenaline is of the utmost importance. Motorcycle Missions’ hope is to encourage participants to instill a life-long passion for riding and building motorcycles, that will help them enjoy a happy, healthy, and balanced lifestyle after trauma.
- Motorcycle Relief Project (MRP) is a nonprofit organization based in Evergreen, Colorado. The vision for the organization was born when the founder, Tom Larson, began learning about PTSD and the incredible toll it was taking on military veterans and first responders. Aware of how therapeutic it was to get on his motorcycle and ride when he needed to relax and blow off some steam, Tom couldn't help but think that taking veterans with PTSD and other injuries on motorcycle adventure trips would be a great way of helping them decompress, learn some tools for managing stress, and connect with other veterans with whom they may have something in common.
- Safe Kids Worldwide is a nonprofit organization working to help families and communities keep kids safe from injuries. Safe Kids works with an extensive network of more than 400 coalitions in the United States and with partners in more than 30 countries to reduce preventable injuries.
