Our favorite motorcycle charity is about to have its biggest event of the year, as Two Wheels for Life will be hosting its Day of Champions event ahead of the British GP at Silverstone in just under two weeks’ time.
Held on the Thursday before racing action begins, the Day of Champions offers a number of fun motorcycle events for the whole family, and it culminates with a live auction that is hosted by Randy Mamola, and offers some very cool MotoGP paraphernalia to bid on.
Other events of note include the opportunity to have access to the MotoGP paddock on Thursday and to meet some GP riders. There is also a ride that participants can join, which includes two laps around the Silverstone track (you can buy tickets here).
Of course, all the money raised goes towards a good cause, as Two Wheels for Life provides funding to programs in Africa that ensure life-saving healthcare gets to rural communities using reliable transport (i.e. motorcycles).
Two Wheels for Life is the fundraising partner of globally recognized transport management charity Riders for Health. They raise awareness about the urgent need for reliable transport for healthcare in Africa and put on events to raise money to support the cause.
We love the fact that Two Wheels for Life is a charity that specifically uses motorcycles to make the world a better place, and they does this by taking advantage of the fact that motorcycles can more reliably navigate the spotty infrastructure that links these rural African locations.
As such, the motorcycles that Two Wheels for Life provides have become an invaluable life line to those in medical need.
In addition to this, Two Wheels for Life supports, trains, and provides reliable transport to health workers, who are able to reach villages and families whenever needed with medical support.
This includes ensuring that help gets to women in labor, that the sick reach care facilities in time, and that critical tests for medical conditions such as HIV, AIDS, and Tuberculosis are processed.
If you are going to be in England on August 23rd, and wish to support this worthy cause, we highly recommend attending the Day of Champions at Silverstone. We have been ourselves, and can confirm that it is a ton of fun.
And if you are not going to be attending the British GP, you can still help support the cause, and make a donation via the Two Wheels for Life website.
