KEF will take part in a six-day charity motorcycle ride throughout North America to raise money for ChildLine, a 24-hour counseling service for children and young adults, and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
Beginning July 11, Jack Sharkey, service tech and audio engineer at KEF America, and Johan Coorg, brand ambassador for KEF UK, will leave from Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada to embark on the 1,000 mile “Hands Across the Water” bike tour ending in Ketchum, ID.
The purpose of the charity ride is to bring awareness to KEF America’s goal of raising at least a total of $10,000 during the month’s of June and July to support ChildLine and the NSPCC.
On the final day of the ride, ChildLine will put on the “ChildLine Rocks—Hands Across the Water!” benefit concert at the Sun Valley Pavilion in Sun Valley, ID. All funds from the concert will be donated to the U.S. and Canadian armed forces.
“The team at KEF America is proud to have the opportunity to support ChildLine, the NSPCC and our armed forces,” said Stephanie Scola, marketing manager at KEF America. “As we cheer Jack and Johan on during the motorcycle ride, we encourage everyone to help with this charity drive.”
To help KEF America reach its goal of $10,000 for this charity event — which will be added to KEF UK’s goal of £10,000 — the team at KEF is asking for donations of any denomination to be made at indiegogo.com/KEF-America.
