Curing Cancer With Cafe Racers

There is nothing better in life than paying it forward to help others out. For one its good karma and two, you reap what you sew. Seeing a kid suffer through anything is tough to stomach and we should do what we can to help out. Below is from a post on about helping kids in need of some help.

"That’s right folks! You saw it last night on Cafe Racer! Alan Bernard of Santiago Choppers has joined forces with Cafe Racer, The Esteemed Mecum Auto Auctions and Curing Kid’s Cancer based in Atlanta, GA to help raise money and awareness to fight forms of Lukemia and Cancer found in children.
Alan’s beautiful Martin framed Kawasaki KZ1000 custom Cafe Racer is set to be auctioned off live at the Mecum Auto Auctions taking place in Kissimmee, FL Janurary 26-30th. Please help this wonderful cause and share this information with your fellow riders and collectors via email, Facebook & Twitter. This is a chance to not only own a piece of history built buy one of the best Cafe Racer builders in the industry, but a chance to make history and change the future for children fighting for the lives.

About Curing Kid’s Cancer:

Grainne and Clay Owen created Curing Kids’ Cancer only a year after losing their nine-year-old son Killian to leukemia. Grainne was the driving force behind starting the charity. She launched Coaches Curing Kids Cancer during an appearance on the 2004 WSB Care-a-thon raising money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The idea: Asking kids’ sports teams to donate money in honor of their coach instead of buying a gift. Coaches didn’t go without a gift however. In return for a donation, coaches were sent a t-shirt and a personalized certificate. “I hoped that we could raise $5,000 that first season,” Grainne said. “We raised $45,000 – and knew we had a great idea on our hands.” Grainne has raised more than $1 million since that time.
