To Support the Shriner’s Children Hospital
“Riding to Make a Child’s Tomorrow Better and Brighter”
We need your help and the help of the community to put a smile on the face of a small child and make their day just a little brighter.
GWRRA is a non-profit group of motorcycle enthusiasts from Billings, Montana. Our Goldwing Chapter supports charities that help children because “children are our future”. One of the charities we support is the Shriner’s Children Hospital in Spokane, Washington. Children from infancy to age 18 from Montana, Idaho and the surrounding area have benefited from work done at the Shriner’s Children Hospital.
Admission to the hospital is based on medical need,
and ALL services are FREE to all patients.
This is why we need your help….
