The Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis Hosts annual “Give A Gift Of Breath” ride to help raise money for patient support and research.
(Hooksett,NH) This Saturday is expected to be a perfect September day in New Hampshire, and riders from all across the region are expected to take part in the “Give A Gift Of Breath” motorcycle ride to benefit The Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis.
“Saturday is predicted to be a perfect day for a motorcycle ride,” said Ron Geoffroy, President of the Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis. “With the addition of live music by the Rik-Sha Band, and food provided by the Puritan Backroom, this could be our biggest ride to date.”
Pulmonary Fibrosis is a rare lung disease that creates scar tissue inside the lungs, making it harder and harder to breathe. Pulmonary Fibrosis currently effects more than 500,000 people in the US.
The annual ride brings in much needed donations that are used to fund ongoing research, like the “Pirfenidone” drug trials. The donations also go to our new “Breathe Easy” program that provides monetary support for families who are suffering with Pulmonary Fibrosis. The Second Wind Foundation provides qualifying families with gas cards to ease the cost of multiple visits to pulmonary specialists.
The ride kicks off from the Plumbers and Pipefitters Hall, 161 Londonderry Turnpike, Hooksett, NH at 10:30 am. The cost is $25 per motorcycle, and $10 per additional rider. Registration starts at 8 am.
After the two-hour scenic New Hampshire ride, feast on lunch provided by The Puritan Backroom, and enjoy live rockabilly-blues music from the Rik-Sha Band. There will also be silent auctions and raffles for great prizes from local restaurants and shops.
“We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning for the Give A Gift of Breath motorcycle ride,” added Geoffroy.
