Harley Davidson Donates Pink Motorcycle

Posted: Updated:

There are a lot of makes, models and styles of motorcycles. But one motorcycle is being driven an extra mile to help a good cause.

There are many Harley Davidson motorcycles but there's only one Tough Enough to Wear Pink bike. And the only way to take it home it is to be the highest bidder at Tough Enough to Wear Pink auction.

"They in turn told me that they wanted to donate the Harley Davidson to the Tough enough to wear pink program so we could do a live auction to raise money for tough enough to wear pink," says Connie Sundby, Tough Enough to Wear Pink.

Connie Sundby is not just on the board of Tough Enough to Wear Pink, she has a personal connection with cancer.

"Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. And, it was quite a journey for me. And, I always feel that everything happens for reason. And, I guess the reason that it happened is that I could help Tough Enough to Wear Pink," says Sundby.

Sundby helped jump start the program in Minot seven years ago.

"Going through cancer is not an easy journey. It zaps you mentally, physically. And, you are kind of drained of all of your energy. And, this program is a way to get back that energy," says Sundby.

This custom Harley Davidson is one of the largest donations that Tough Enough to Wear Pink has ever received.

"This is a huge boost for us. We're out selling shirts and caps for the last six, seven years trying to raise enough money to keep this program going. It's hard. You got to sell a lot of T-shirts and a lot of hats. But when we receive a donation of this size to boost our program, it's truly amazing," says Sundby.

The donation of the $13,000 motorcycle will provide a big boost to the cancer rehab exercise program.

"Everybody's in black and pink, and it's kind of a badge of honor to wear that to know we're working for a cause. That we want to help this organization that we want to help cancer survivors," says Rick Teagle, Magic City Harley Davidson.

The custom Harley Davidson is being auctioned off at The Minot Y's Men Rodeo on Tough Enough to Wear Pink night on Friday, October 11th.

Tickets for the Minot Y's Men's Rodeo can be purchased online at MinotYsMenRodeo.com.
