|From 2008 to 2012 the LowCal 250
Motorcycle Rally to
Benefit the PKD Foundation, a fundraising event sponsored by San
Diego BMW Motorcycles, raised $18,000 for
PKD Research. Open to all adventurous
riders on any street-legal motorcycle, participants typically covered
about 250 miles
throughout San Diego County and beyond.
Because the sponsor, San Diego BMW Motorcycles, provided dinner and covered all the costs of operating the rally, rider's entries were a 100% deductible donation to the PKD Foundation (The majority of donations have been between $50 and $100, but any amount was welcome!!).
Generous sponsors of the 2012 event's merchandise prizes were Schuberth, Shoei and Nexx Helmets. California law requires use of a DOT certified helmet and the LowCal 250 endorsed using a quality full-face helmet that provides superior protection, quality features and long lasting comfort to reduce fatigue and enhance riding pleasure.
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) affects 600,000 Americans and 12.5 million children and adults worldwide. Visit PKDcure.org to find out more about the only organization worldwide dedicated to promoting research to find a cure for PKD and improving the care and treatment of those it affects.
