J&P Cycles Donates $35,000 to Camp Courageous of Iowa

By July 27, 2013General Posts

Motorcyclists may look tough decked out in their leather, but most are very caring, giving individuals. Just 10 miles from J&P Cycles’ headquarters and outside Monticello, Iowa, lies a very special camp for very special people – children and adults with special needs. For more than 30 years, Camp Courageous of Iowa has been a place, where campers can have a great time with others facing the same challenges in a safe and nurturing environment.

J&P Cycles® has supported Camp since 2002 when they began incorporating an Industry Golf Outing with the Open House Rally festivities. This year, the Golf Outing combined with other donation oriented events during the Open House raised a total of $35,000 for Camp Courageous. 

J&P Cycles® Vice President/General Manager Zach Parham presented the check to Camp Courageous Director Charlie Becker. “It gives me great pleasure to donate this check to Camp Courageous on behalf of J&P Cycles, our industry partners and customers.”

On June 28, J&P® held its 11th Annual Golf Outing at Fawn Creek Country Club in Anamosa. The golf tournament originated as a way for industry distributors and media who travel from across the country to relax during an afternoon of friendship and fun, all while raising money for a worthy cause. Distributors and media contribute by sponsoring holes and awards in addition to making cash donations. In total this year, 44 representatives from 29 of J&P Cycles® exhibitors and industry media participated in the tournament. The donation made this year, brings the total raised over the last 11 events to well over $160,000.
