Harley-Davidson Gets Into Gear For 2016 Hogs For The Homeless

Posted:

Harley-Davidsonå¨ Australia and New Zealand will once again support the 2016 Hogs for the Homeless ride.

The annual three-week tour is focused on raising awareness and funds for Father Chris Riley's Youth off the Streets charity.

According to Homelessness in Australia, 1 in 200 people in the country are homeless and 27 percent are under the age of 18. In 2012, there were nearly 47,000 homeless young people under the age of 25 in Australia.

In order to help, the Hogs for the Homeless tour will be engaging with local communities through meet and greets, school rugby league clinics and other activities in order to promote the message around youth homelessness.

The tour kicks off from Terry Hills Tavern on Thursday, 11 February with a performance by Grinspoon musician Phil Jamieson and a charity auction conducted by Tim Gilbert.

Rugby League legends Nathan Hindmarsh, Brad Fittler, Ian Schubert, Matt Cooper, Steve Menzies, Josh Perry, Jack Elsegood, Steve Roach, and Jarrod McCracken, musician Phil Jameson and V8 Supercar driver David Reynolds will be tackling the charity ride at full throttle.

Over the three weeks, the Hogs for the Homeless tour will see key players riding through Mudgee, Forbes, Wagga Wagga, Cooma, Bonbaderry, Gunnedah, Glen Innes, Lennox Head, Gloucester, Cessnock, Oberon, Penrith, Campbelltown and St Marys.

"Through involvement with Harley-Davidsonå¨ Australia, we've been able to help spread the word and bring the troubling issue of youth homelessness in our community to light with the help of our national dealer network and some of Rugby League's biggest names. That in itself has been a great reward for our team and the dealers involved," said Adam Wright, Director of Marketing for Harley-Davidsonå¨ Australia and New Zealand.

As with previous years, Harley-Davidsonå¨ Australia and New Zealand will be supporting the fundraising for Father Chris Riley's Youth off the Streets, by providing a Motorcycle as first prize in the raffle. First prize is a Harley-Davidsonå¨ Hard Candy Custom‰ã¢ Gold Flake Forty-Eight‰ã¢, valued at $19,995. The Forty-Eight balances function and style with the bold visual presence offered by the Hard Candy Custom Gold Flake finish that is sure to turn heads.

To lend your support, purchase Hogs for the Homeless raffle tickets and catch the crew on tour. For more information on the tour, please visit https://www.nswrl.com.au/community/hogs-for-the-homeless.html
