MRA And High Plains Raceway Hosting Charity Track Day June 30

Denver, CO - The Motorcycle Roadracing Association (MRA) and High Plains Raceway (HPR) are hosting its 2nd annual charity motorcycle track day, Racing For Fallen Heroes, benefiting the Colorado Fallen Hero Foundation on Sunday, June 30, 2019. While the event is taking place on a race track and sponsored by a racing organization, it is open to riders of all abilities who wish to experience the thrill of riding on a racetrack while raising money for a good cause.

There are also activities for people who don’t ride, or don’t want to ride their own bikes on the racetrack. 2-up rides will be provided throughout the day by the Yamaha Champions Riding School and there will be a silent auction with items donated by a variety of sponsors for the event. Finally there will be a free clinic provided by the Yamaha Champions Riding School at lunch time that everyone is invited to attend.

The core of the Racing For Fallen Heroes charity track day is a full day of riding on HPR's recently repaved 2.55 mile full course featuring 15 corners and 300 feet of cumulative elevation change per lap. Cost for the track day is $200, which includes on-track sessions every hour throughout the day. Track will be hot from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, with a lunch break from 12:00 pm until 1:00 pm. Event registration is being handled on MotorsportReg at https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/racing-for-fallen-heroes-high-plains-raceway-motorcycle-roadracing-association-139270

All net proceeds will go to the Colorado Fallen Hero Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of Colorado law enforcement officers and civilian personnel who serve in a voluntary capacity. When a line of duty death occurs, the Colorado Fallen Hero Foundation can assist, support, and provide resources for a host agency in their effort to serve the deceased officer’s family based on their needs and wishes. Their presence allows agency members to participate in honoring their colleague without the pressure of funeral planning, allowing them an appropriate time to grieve. Planning a line of duty death funeral while handling the associated investigation and the routine of the everyday call load can overwhelm any agency. Their team of professionals integrates with agency personnel to assist with funeral planning to whatever extent the family and the agency desire. Their services are provided at no cost to the agency or the family. For more information about the Colorado Fallen Hero Foundation, go to http://www.cofallenhero.org.
