Indian Motorcycle coordinates Folds of Honor charity rides

Indian Motorcycle has announced a fundraising effort in partnership with Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization that provides families of fallen or disabled service members and first responders with life-changing educational scholarships. Indian is coordinating regional owners’ rides around the country for August 24, and riders can donate and register to participate before midnight of this date. 

All contributions, regardless of size, will fuel Folds of Honor’s mission. As a special incentive, Indian Motorcycle will gift the individual who raises the most funds with a brand-new, custom Indian Springfield. Additional products and prizes will be offered at various levels of contributions.

“Supporting U.S. military service members and first responders has always been core to our brand, which is why we’re excited to be partnering with Folds of Honor and rallying our owners to give back and support those families in need,” says Aaron Jax, vice president of Indian Motorcycle. “As riders, we understand the power of community and the joy of giving back, and with our legion of owners all around the country, we are beyond excited to make an impact for such an important cause.”

For nearly 20 years, Folds of Honor has provided educational support to the families of fallen or disabled service members and first responders. The organization has awarded over 52,000 educational scholarships, totaling approximately $244 million in educational impact. Providing 45 percent of all scholarships to minority students, the organization significantly impacts educational opportunities by fostering diversity and empowerment within academia.

“We are grateful to the team at Indian Motorcycle and to the proud patriots who ride,” says Lt Col Dan Rooney, founder and CEO of Folds of Honor. “The individuals who participate in these nationwide rides have made a choice to never forget the sacrifices made by these American heroes and to help provide academic scholarships to their spouses and children.”

The Folds of Honor charity ride is one of many events featuring the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group (IMRG). With approximately 137 chapters and 7,500 riders from around the country, IMRG hosts hundreds of rides and events every year for members and general motorcycle riders alike. Registration and donations are now available at the IMRG National Charity webpage.
