Annual Ride For Autism With Grand Marshall Brenda Fox

brendafox2Los Angeles TV Motorcyclist & Journalist Brenda Fox will lead the 6th Annual Ride For Autism. Event is March 27 to 29th. Please, support this ride to help raise awareness for Autism and helping those with Autism. Project Independence is an organization founded on the premise that parents of an autistic child (or any special-needs individual for that matter) will not be around forever to offer needed care the goal of the organization is to raise awareness and create a better understanding of what autism is. It strives to offer opportunities for Autistic individuals to become independent and productive rather than require help from others. Project Independence is staffed entirely by non-paid volunteers with all the money-every cent-is donated to families in need dealing with Autism.

The ride, March 27-29th is based on the philosophy of a “good time for a good cause” two things the Cajuns love to deliver! The ride includes an overnight poker run that departs from Cajun Harley-Davidson in Lafayette, LA travels to Natchez, MS, a truly beautiful and scenic ride with the final card drawn in Lafayette.  The ride includes an arrival party at Doc Big Love’s in Natchez, great food, motorcycle raffle and a concert that is sure to be remembered. Guaranteed a Cajun good time! Donations are accepted via PayPal at: Women Motorcyclist. Info at: Project Independence.

    Made a donation – but I can’t motor over for the ride. Have fun. Sounds like a fun ride through Cajon country. I miss “dirty rice” and the bayou.

    Have you ever considered an Autism Ride for Independence from El Cajon, (San Diego) Calif. to Ensenada, Mex. B.C. ?
    It’s a great ride along a federally maintained wilderness highway, with slow and fast lanes that will accommodate antiques to Evo’s. There would be state and federal escorts – and restrooms are at every toll booth (no tolls for us) – we’re waved thorough.
    We could leave from on El Cajon Blvd., re-group at the Playas (beach front) enclave west of Tijuana (refreshments and orientation/logistics) and ride the toll road all the way to Hussong’s Cantina in Ensenada – with an early dinner at “Antionio’s” Seafood on the south end of town.
    Refreshments and a poker stop would be at the pacific rim overlook at Salsupedes (Sal-sue-pway-dez). Chase vehicles provided by the “Green Angels” and safe passage into Mexico and out, guaranteed by Genera Godinez and Pepe Ortiz of 8th Street -Tijuana and Alfonso Bustamente (Rancho Victoria), Tecate-Tijuana. • Don’t attend if your scared.
    Autism crosses borders.
    Now is a good time to show support for “many facets” of misfortune, covering as many areas possible, when you have people willing to contribute their time and money – and show up for something worthwhile.
    Most people from California will never get to make that Salsupedes ride on their own, for fear of breakdowns, etc.
    Riding along the cliff rim the bay on a warm, windless full moon night is something you never forget.

    Way to go Brenda! It’s great to see the support for such a worthy cause.! I We have a great ride here in Chicago every year for the Autism Ride with a gal named Diane Gedick at: whose son has Autism. She has done a tremendous job with her quest in raising support and monies for awareness of Autism. The run she organizes every year brings hundreds – perhaps thousands out for this event. I am happy to say Open Road Radio has been & strong proponent of this charity, and we thank you for your wonderful efforts – let me know if we can help out in anyway 🙂

    It is great to see the support for this cause, and it is even better having the best in women and motorcycling leading this Annual Ride For Autism.

    Francesco, Brenda does “represent all good motorcyclists”.

    After meeting Brenda about three months ago I realized she is a true motorcyclist and in it for all the right reasons.

    Her dedication to the sport and lifestyle is without the normal boundries of what you ride and with whom.

    This Autism ride is just another example of how much effort Brenda puts into everything she does. My hat is off to her and I hope to be there myself to cover the ride on our show.

    Way to go Brenda!

    Brenda and I have a mutual friend (a mentor to me as well). He has been talking about Brenda for months and months. Finally, I had the pleasure of connecting with her myself. In the short time I have known her, I have been touched by the love, generosity, courage and strength she demonstrates to all, no matter their position in life. It truly is an honor to befriend her. I hope to one day have the privilege of riding with her….

    May you all have a blessed and safe ride!!
    Luv & Peace,

  24. 24 Rhino Mar 15th, 2009 at 11:52 am

  26. 26 Brent Peters Mar 15th, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    I have to say that from what I’ve seen over the years, motorcyclists are among the very most generous, and thoughtful of people when it comes to worthy causes. I haven’t seen anyone that will take a cause in their teeth, and chew it until there’s nothing left to chew, like a crowd of dusty old ornery riders with hearts as big as some of their belly’s! So I’m saying thank you to everyone that does something to help someone else, and a great big THANK YOU to you too Brenda. Keep it up!!

  27. 27 Elisa Mar 16th, 2009 at 11:07 am

    Brenda you are the greatest!!
    You find the time to help everyone around you, what a great cause!

  28. 28 HAMSTER PAUL Mar 16th, 2009 at 5:49 pm
