The award winning documentary file “Why We Ride” was shown at J & L Harley Davidson in Sioux Falls raising more than $2,000 for the Abbott House girls in Mitchell. The proceeds from the showing will support the launch of our third Helping with Horsepower bike rebuild program designed to teach life skills to the girls at Abbott House.
“Why We Ride” is an inspiring documentary film that shares the passion of motorcycle riding and shows the camaraderie of the friends and families who ride together. It’s a celebration of the motorcycling community, as told by racers, riders, pioneers, and parents involved in the sport, including Mitchell’s own Brian and Laura Klock, their daughters Erika and Karlee, and Abbott House!
The Helping with Horsepower bike rebuild program is shown in the film. The program provides 40 Abbott House girls, ages 7 to 17, new hands-on problem-solving skills as they design, repair, and customize a damaged motorcycle. It assists girls in attaining greater self-confidence and moves them to more action and success. The focus of the program is to impart important life lessons, including: you can repair and rebuild anything in your life with the right tools and inspiration.
