5th ANNUAL BMW CHARITY RIDE REVS UP SUPPORT FOR LOCAL CHILDREN AND CHP 11-99 FOUNDATION Over $75,000 to be Donated to Children’s Charity and California Highway Patrol Foundation Woodcliff Lake, NJ – October 3, 2005… A group of 60 motorcyclists, led by CHIPS TV star Larry Wilcox and Kelly Crawford (son of Broderick Crawford of the TV series Highway Patrol), will take to the open road for the 15th annual BMW Charity Ride. The four-day tour, beginning October 6, covers 1,200 miles of California’s and Arizona’s most scenic roads and raises funds for the St. Francis Medical Center Foundation in Lynwood, California and the California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation. The event has a loyal following of corporate executives, attorneys, doctors and entertainment moguls who ride together each year to raise money for the foundations by donating at least $1,000 to participate. BMW Motorrad USA, the ride’s principal sponsor, provides motorcycles and support for the event. The tour begins at BMW’s Western Region Training Center, 1175 S. Dupont Avenue, Ontario, CA and travels East through Joshua National Park to Lake Havasu, on to Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon and the Grand Canyon, then returning to Ontario on Sunday, October 9 via vintage Route 66 and Laughlin, Nevada. Ride marshals Larry Wilcox and Kelly Crawford will travel in the original and fully restored California Highway Patrol car, the 1955 Buick that was featured in the “Highway Patrol series. The St. Francis Medical Center Foundation serves communities in South Central Los Angeles. Donations from this year’s ride – expected to top $75,000 – will go to the St. Francis Medical Center’s “Footprints” program, which provides shoes and clothing for hundreds of underprivileged children who otherwise would be unable to attend school. The California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation provides support for families of CHP officers who are lost, injured or disabled in the line of duty.
