Cruising for a Cause


"Cruising For The Cause" is a one or two day event featuring a car show, bike show, arts and crafts , consumer and health fair as well as music , food and much more. The event is hosted by The Johnny O Foundation (only national foundation to link Alzheimer’s, Dementia and TBI ).

Our awareness campaign addresses our cause and the need to bring our message to the public. Our causes effect all ages (1 -101). We address the need to remember "Seniors" who are stricken by these "Cognitive Impairments" and our youth and others who contracted TBI/Concussion, from sports, military and general trauma resulting from motor vehicle accidents and other means. It is our intent to use these "Unique" events to bring awareness to the public and in turn fund our awareness, outreach and research projects. Our “The Brain Awareness Project” for afterschool kids will start in 2016. Our partnering with The Wal-Mart Foundation and the different Sam's Club's, Home Depot, casino/resort locations, shopping centers and our corporate sponsors will enable the visibility we need to get our message across.

We hope you can attend one of our future events and we encourage Motorcycle Clubs and other organizations to hold a charity ride to help us increase the awareness of our causes.
