Hall of fame – motorcycle icon Malcolm Smith from the legendary film On Any Sunday joined his courageous friend, Brenda Fox to lead the “Every Woman Counts” Bike for Breast Cancer Awareness Ride in Sturgis.
This year’s ride and charity auction proceeds will assist Brenda Fox in getting through this difficult time, allowing the industry to give back to the woman who has helped so many motorcycle builders and parts manufacturers.
The ride was an off-the-beaten-path adventure through the Black Hills region.
‘This project gives me a platform to get stronger and turn my situation around for a great cause,” she said . “I love life on two wheels and I am so thankful I can enjoy the journey of the ride with others.
“The motorcycle industry gave me support when my life crashed. I look forward to raising awareness for the Every Woman Counts Cancer program and this ride will allow us to reach out to a much bigger crowd.”
