“Movember is a cause that resonates with Harley-Davidson® owners and supporters,” said Buzz Green, Senior Vice President & General Manager, with Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada. “We were overwhelmed by the positive support in 2011, and we are even more excited about the nationwide involvement that is gearing up for 2012.”
And you really can win a brand-new Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Last year’s winner, Bobby Tinkler, is the true epitome of a “Mo Bro” winner. Tinkler’s father had recently passed away, and it was as a tribute to his father that he took on the role as captain of the Movember Team at the family-owned Rona Store in Rawdon, Que.
“I wanted to do something to honour my father,” Tinkler said. “He was always looking for ways to help others. Dad rode motorcycles himself, and he would have loved taking that Night Rod® Special [motorcycle] out for a spin.”
Together, the team raised over $3,800, with Tinkler raising over $1,000 himself, and to his amazement, Tinkler won the 2012 Harley-Davidson® Night Rod® motorcycle.
This year’s Movember hype is spreading across the country with local Harley-Davidson® Retailers getting in on the fun. Launch parties will be kicking off in major Canadian cities, including Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, and Montréal. Harley-Davidson will also be active on Canadian university campuses sponsoring the Big Mo On Campus Awards, including a $2,500 gift card to the leading campus fundraiser.
In 2011, Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada began its partnership with Movember, raising over $130,000 in support of Prostate Cancer Canada helping to change the face of men’s health. This year’s goal is to surpass their donations and involvement, with more ’stache and more cash for a great cause.
“The Mos at Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada have been a great addition to the Movember family,” said Pete Bombaci, Movember National Country Director. “Having such an iconic Brand embrace men’s health and come on board as a major partner will make for a truly exciting ride in 2012.”
Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada is asking all Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to get involved. With every $100 raised supporters receive a contest entry ballot for the chance to win the Harley-Davidson® H-D1TM Factory Customized Street Bob® motorcycle. Through Bike Builder, you choose exactly how you want your Street Bob® motorcycle customized – engine, fit, and styling – and Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada will build it for you that way, straight from the Factory.
