Those of you who are not members of AMA, may not be aware of this Fundraiser. It's been a long time since the last study. I think we should all do our part for our own sake as Motorcylists. In fact, you may want to consider even joining the AMA since it's an organization that represents and looks after us.
Fuel the Fund
Join the AMA in raising matching funds for a motorcycle crash study
Would you give up the cost of one tank of gas for your bike to help make motorcycling safer for all of us? For years to come?
The AMA is asking you to do just that. And the Association is doing its part, too — $100,000 worth.
The federal government has pledged up to $2.8 million to fund a comprehensive study of motorcycle crashes, something that hasn't been done in 25 years. But the funding calls for a 50 percent match from us. That means we need to raise $2.8 million of our own to take full advantage of the federal funding.
The AMA believes so strongly in this effort that we’ve committed $100,000 immediately to the project. We’re asking companies in the industry to pledge money as well, and it looks like they're coming through.
But we'd also like individual motorcyclists like you to get involved. Donate online or send your donation by mail to Fuel the Fund, c/o AMA, 13515 Yarmouth Drive, Pickerington, OH 43147.
One tank of gas is all we're asking. Help the AMA fuel the fund.
