Corporate sponsors and individuals will have the opportunity to have their name and logo displayed on the sidecar to acknowledge their participation in the project.
• All contributors will get a thank you letter and image of the completed project.**
• $500 donation will get your name on the sidecar.*
• $1,000 donation will get your company logo on the sidecar *
All donations go directly to MRP to offset the cost of both sidecar and motorcycle. Crowdrise will take a fee from each donation, unless the donor chooses to cover the fee.
*The bike and sidecar will be painted or vinyl-wrapped in a military-themed Olive Drab color. To keep the military theme as intact as possible, sponsors logos will be displayed in black only.

Up until now, MRP has only been able to serve veterans who are able to ride a standard motorcycle with no modifications. Adding a sidecar to its fleet will enable MRP to include veterans who are amputees or have other physical limitations that prevent them from riding a standard motorcycle. The sidecar will enable such veterans to enjoy the same camaraderie, beautifully scenery, workshop material and group discussions as other participants. Past participants of MRP Relief Rides have credited the MRP program with helping them reengage in the civilian world, mend broken relationships, kick addictions, and even regain the will to live.
DMC has generously supplied an Expedition sidecar at below cost as a way to partner in the Sidecar Fundraiser. Corporate sponsors and individuals will have the opportunity to have their names and logos displayed on the sidecar to acknowledge their participation in the project. The bike and sidecar will be painted or vinyl-wrapped in a military-themed Olive Drab color. To avoid color clashes and keep the military theme as intact as possible, sponsors logos will be displayed in black only. MRP will use 100% of the proceeds to purchase the motorcycle and sidecar.
About Motorcycle Relief Project
MRP is a 501c3 nonprofit that serves military veterans with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and other related issues by taking them on five-day therapeutic adventure bike rides. MRP staff lead the on- and off-road Relief Rides and professional riding coaches provide basic dirt riding instruction. Participants ride during the day and then take part in evening workshops that provide valuable coping skills and opportunities for veterans to discuss the struggles of dealing with PTSD and related issues in a safe environment with peers who have experienced similar challenges. All expenses of the program including lodging, meals, insurance and use of a BMW GS adventure bike are covered by donations to MRP. Those physically-disabled applicants who are selected to take part in a Relief Ride because of the new sidecar will also be able to do so at no cost to them. MotoRelief.org
