The No. Ten Is Beginning With The Concert For MDA RIDE Already on Friday!
The jubilee 10th MDA RIDE charity event will be held at Václavské náměstí (Wenceslas Square) in Prague on June 16th from 9:30. This largest motorcycle charity event in the Czech Republic is connected to a public collection of the MDA RIDE association to benefit of individual people with muscular dystrophy who are associated at The Muscular Dystrophics Association in the CZ and the PARENT PROJECT and to support the activities of these organizations. During its first nine years 2009 to 2017, the association has donated already CZK 4,846,834 to help individual people with muscular dystrophy and helped to finance 264 projects.
The event is open to the general public, especially families with children and young people. All visitors can get photographed on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and a hairdressing salon will be open specially for women. A beautiful Harley-Davidson shirt once again signed by legendary Willie G. Davidson, the motorcycle designer and former senior vice president & chief styling officer of Harley-Davidson Motor Company, will be auctioned during the event. Furthermore, the new book Duchennovi jezdci aneb Život se svalovou dystrofií (Duchenne Riders Alias Living With Muscular Dystrophy) will be officially launched.
A series of concerts and performances will take care of relaxed atmosphere. The Prague rock band Strahov is playing hard rock from the 1970s. Petr Vondráček and Lokomotiva are paying tribute to the classic rockandroll. Finally, we are looking forward to Tram 69, probably the best European event band. We also will enjoy the show of Vladimír Hron, a king of musical imitators, or the original dance performance of Babaletky from Radonice. There will be plenty of beautiful motorcycles of Harley-Davidson and other brands, as well as equally interesting exhibitions of Ford Mustang cars and American veteran cars.
The headline point of the schedule is the traditional Graceful Ride Through Prague which starts at 14:00.Muscular dystrophy patients are participating in cars of our partners such as Mustang Riders Club and 1st Veteran US Car Club Prague at this joint ride-out of motorcycles of all brands and sizes.
