Snowmobile fundraiser supports suicide prevention: report

On Sunday in Mantorville, Minnesota, more than 70 people showed up for a snowmobile memorial ride to support suicide prevention and mental health.

According to reporting from KTTC, the Ride For Wyatt suicide prevention fundraiser in memory of 19-year-old Wyatt Coy sponsors the Wyatt Coy Memorial Fund – a scholarship awarded annually to a local outbound college student.

Riders drove 60 miles during the event and donated 25 dollars to participate, with the fundraiser accumulating nearly $40,000 in donations from the surrounding community and participants last season.

In the latest digital edition Powersports Business detailed Hattiesburg Cycles’ donation of more than $10,000 to the local Forest General Healthcare Foundation – benefitting breast cancer patients throughout its community; it’s another example of a local dealership being more than a business.
