We are pleased to announce the "Keep on Rollin'" Charity Car & Bike Show on this Saturday, July 17, 2010 at Brighton Ski Resort. Over 250 classic and custom cars and motorcycles will be on display from Noon until 5:00 pm. All proceeds will be donated to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which funds innovative research, and improves the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.
The event is being organized by the Utah Chapter of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. Steering Committee member Ryan Stevenson is president of this year's event. Ryan suffered a spinal cord injury in a snowboarding accident three years ago that left him paralyzed. Ryan's love of classic cars and the support of his family and friends were instrumental in his recovery. Ryan believes that it is his responsibility to do what he can to help find a cure for paralysis and help others with spinal cord injuries. Keep on Rollin' is Ryan's way of giving back to the community and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, who have given him so much support.
"We are really grateful for the fantastic support we have received from the business community and the many volunteers who have come together to assure this event will be a huge success. We expect over 2500 people to attend the show, and we hope to raise $25,000 for the Foundation. So, please plan to escape the summer heat and join us up at Brighton on this Saturday July 17th to see some really great cars & bikes, support a really great cause, and enjoy some great food and fun!" said Stevenson.
Local businesses have donated more than $5000 in prizes that will be awarded by raffle drawings during the event. Suggested donation for admission is $2 per person or $5 per family.
