Bikeland's Charity Raffle Benefits Spinal Cord Research

West Vancouver, BC- held a charity raffle to benefit Spinal Cord Research and support the Rick Hansen "Man in Motion" Foundation. The Rick Hansen "Man in Motion" Foundation supports Spinal Cord research to aid in a cure for those who have suffered spinal cord injuries.

The Rick Hansen foundation had this to say about Rick...

"Rick Hansen epitomizes "determination". In the summer of 1973, Rick was a free-spirited, athletic fifteen year old who had a life altering automobile crash that left him a paraplegic. Although he could no longer walk, Rick could dream and he became a world-class athlete, winning 19 international wheelchair marathons, including three world championships and competed for Canada in the 1984 Olympic Games.

In the spring of 1985, he embarked on a bigger dream and wheeled the circumference of the earth to raise awareness and funds for spinal cord injury. Two years and 40,000km later, Rick and his team returned to Vancouver, B.C., having raised over $26M."

Through a link on's website, $200 in tickets were sold with the chance to win a Muzzy Titanium Slip on exhaust for a 2004/05 Kawasaki ZX-10R, a Bikeland Long Sleeve Shirt, a Bikeland T-Shirt, and a Bikeland Beanie.

The draw was held at Sorrento's Pizza in West Vancouver BC. Sorrento, standing in front of his 2004 Hayabusa, drew the winning prizes.
