World record attempt aims for $76,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs
MEREDITH — Laconia Harley-Davidson and New Hampshire Motor Speedway aim to raise more than $76,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of New Hampshire and set a new Guinness World Records title for the most money raised in 24 hours by a motorcycle parade.
The fundraiser, which coincides with the 90th anniversary of Laconia Motorcycle Week, is tied to the purchase of tickets for a Community Appreciation Parade at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on the final Saturday of Bike Week, June 15.
Participants will have the opportunity to ride around the New Hampshire Motor Speedway track and continue on a police-escorted 32-mile ride around the Lakes Region. Non-riders can contribute by making a donation at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on June 15.
To reserve a space for the event, visit www.newhampshire.speedwaycharities.org. Riders can also register at the Laconia Harley-Davidson dealership at 239 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith, or sign up the day of the event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Tickets are $35 per bike and $15 for an additional rider. Only 50 VIP tickets will be available for $150, which will enable a rider and passenger to get a priority spot in the first 50 spaces behind the pace car. Participants will also receive one free ticket to the Loudon Classic Weekend event that evening at NHMS.
