Become a Riders for Health hero with MCN

Published: 11 July 2012

Don’t miss your chance to help raise money for biking’s top charity – Riders for Health, which provides bikes for medical workers in Africa – and be in with the chance to win exclusive paddock passes for next year’s British MotoGP at Silverstone.

Some of the most sought after tickets in British motor racing could be yours, all you have to do is get behind Riders for Health’s summer campaign.

Take part in a sponsored event, organise a ride-out with your mates and charge £5 or simply put a collection tin in your office. Do something worthwhile with the rest of your summer and help Riders for Health to raise as much money as possible.

What’s more, every donation made to the motorcycling community’s favourite charity until September 14 will be matched pound-for-pound by the Government so there has never been a better time to support Riders for Health.

Whatever ideas you come up with, send us a photo and the most imaginative fundraising efforts will be featured in the paper each week. We will even send you a framed copy of the page. 

By Sunday, September 9, the person who has raised the most amount of money for Riders will receive a special MCN award and be named a ‘Riders for Health hero’.

The winning fundraiser will also receive a pair of exclusive paddock passes for the British MotoGP at Silverstone next June as well as VIP tickets to Riders for Health’s popular MotoGP event, Day of Champions.
