Sturgis Breast Cancer Ride To Benefit Brenda Fox.

“Hello Cyril. What a trip! (In more ways than words express!). Wish you had been there so I could have had the opportunity to thank you in person and I bet down the road I will have that opportunity. I’ll be going to a “wellness center” and undergoing medical treatment, so I wanted to be sure I shot off a little report and thank you for the success of the Breast Cancer ride. Thank you for allowing me to share this with you. Infinite love & gratitude” Brenda (picture. From left: “Hot Stuff Betz”, Brenda Fox, Malcolm Smith, Sasha Mullins)

    I’m so glad to see this post about this ride.
    Our plans to Sturgis were cancelled at the last moment or we would have been there.
    Thank you for posting this and bringing attention to a much needed cause.

    Brenda I saw you from a far standing with Scott Long and some other builders I’ve seen on TV.
    You are a beautiful woman and very respected in the motorcycle community. I missed the chance to come up and offer support, but want you to know you have alot of people pulling for you.

    With awe and respect,

    We were at the Top 50 park for the bike show and saw a tiny little gal with pink hi top tennis shoes on a big chopper rolling thru as a pro. We had no idea that was Brenda until we were waiting for the awards and saw the same gal up on the stage. Brenda’s speech and expression of gratitute hit us smack in the heart. I was there with my two sons, my wife was not. She passed from cancer last year.
    Brenda talked about enjoying the ride and how happy she was to be there at Sturgis.
    We support the ride & Brenda 100%.

    I was very shocked and sad to hear about what Brenda has been going thru.

    I met Brenda at show she was hosting and dared here to be able to start up my custom bike. Told her if she could figure out how to start is (hidden toggle switch) she could ride it – and damn it! She did!
    Dress in hots pants, boots she started the friggin thing, took off and rode around the parking lot.
    I never expected that and about had a heart attack when she did.

    I am so pleased the motorcycle community has rallied around this special lady.
    Praying for you,

    Hey that BDM K-9 was a great choice for enjoying your ride through the Black Hills…

    Brenda is beautiful inside and out. I’m always happy to be around her because she is such a colorful person. I know that her inner strengths will prevail and speed her healing… God Bless

    She always appreciates everyone, but really it is everyone that appreciates her.

    AMA HALL OF FAME RACER – Skip Van Leeuwen

    Motorcyclist helping other Motorcyclist that’s what it’s about!
    The folks that put on the ride did an outstanding job for a great cause!
    Brenda Fox has street cred. She has raced the Baja 1000, Baja 500 and other score off road races and teaming up with her friend Malcolm Smith for the ride was outstanding.

    Thank you to all of those that supported the ride!

    Brenda Fox is an inspiration to all who meet her. In my book she is nothing short of a hero.
    As a woman who lost her mother to breast cancer I know first hand how hard it can be. For Brenda to make the ride to Sturgis in questionable health and spread the word on Breast Cancer awareness is awesome beyond words.
    Brenda’s story is one that needs to be heard, not by a few but by the masses. She brings hope, light and beauty to all that meet her. She’s a woman in a mans world and kicks serious booty. Thank you Brenda for being who you are!

    I met Brenda at the Thunderdome at Sturgis when she was leaving those rockstar redwing people and that Steven Tyler crew.
    I figured she was just some rockstar hot chick, let alone a girl who could ride a chopper.
    I had no idea that she was the one going thru all this.
    My sister is went thru hell with this.
    hang in there sister, stay strong and ride like the wind.

    Hi All
    Could not make Sturgis this year but wish I would have just to make this ride. I have known Brenda since her teens and she worked for me at Big Al’s. She is a super great person and I was happy when I heard that they were going to have this ride for her. I thank everyone that did make the ride to support her. I know she will get well soon and be out there doing what she loves. Nothing clears your head like a good ride. I thank Cyril, Don Emde, Malcolm Smith, Tom Seymour, Skip V, Buzz Buzelli and all the rest that made it possible for her to attend.
    Get well soon kid we need you out there!!

    I spoke with Brenda this morning. just before she checked into a wellness center for another round of “the cure.” Sturgis was a physical, emotional and spiritual challenge – a real benchmark in her recovery. She is such an inspiration to all women who love motorcycling, and all women who have had to reach out for help. Bravo and well done, my new found friend. ~ MJ

    Great event and thanks to Malcom and all of the supporters. Brenda and her cause is wonderful and it was great to see her enjoying Sturgis with everyone. She is an inspiration to all who face similar challenges and she is to be commended for her strength.
