We continue to miss our friend Carlin Dunne, who died while racing at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, but to honor his memory we have the Carlin Dunne Foundation.
The purpose of the Carlin Dunne Foundation is two-fold. First, the foundation focuses on helping athletes diagnosed with, or at risk for, CTE, Concussion Syndrome, and Traumatic Brain Injury.
Secondly, the foundation is dedicated to providing mentorship programs for up-and-coming riders while developing a network to provide the tools necessary to succeed, including programs geared to help rookies navigate the racing business and hone their skills.
So, to help support the Carlin Dunne Foundation, Ducati North America is hosting a fundraiser in New York City on Thursday, December 5th, to honor Carlin’s legacy.
In partnership with Canoe Studios, Ducati has created the fundraiser with plans for a silent auction and gallery presentation of memorabilia showcased during the evening.
The fundraiser is free to attend and open to the public – RSVP registration required (space limited).
The evening will present the chance for guests to bid for unique collectable items from our partners at Bell, Alpinestars, Ducati Corse, Deus, Spider Grips, Yeti, and Kyle Wyman Racing.
Additionally, Calin Dunne’s 2018 winning Multistrada Pikes Peak Edition motorcycle will be on display, as well as a special gallery featuring some of Carlin’s personal racing memorabilia, evoking his diverse skillset and championship spirit.
To cap off the evening, Ducati North America CEO Jason Chinnock will present a retrospective honoring Carlin’s championship achievements and personal accomplishments, giving guests a glimpse into the life of this legendary figure in motorcycle racing.
Those who cannot attend the event in New York will also be able bid on the silent auction through the OneCause online platform, with a link forthcoming on the Ducati website.
