October 9, 2010 - 1st Annual Ride for the Cure. The ride left from Seacoast Harley - Davidson on a cold but sunny day with a little less than two hundred bikes - NOT Bad for our FIRST RUN!
Our Grand Marshall for the ride was Brenda Fox. The ride ended at Jillian's in Manchester with a fashion show put on by Sexy Skins, music and raffles. It was a great day and a huge success!
October 1, 2011- 2nd Annual Ride for the Cure. The ride started and finished at Seacoast Harley - Davidson in N. Hampton, NH. The weather wasn't as great this year, and the rain held some people away. But many still showed and weathered the storm! (Thank you!)
Upon our return to SHD, we had a bike show and a great lunch provided by Texas Roadhouse and live music by DROPZONE. The ride was followed up by our After Ride Bash at the Chop Shop Pub in Seabrook NH. Proceeds were donated to My Breast Cancer Support.
October 6, 2012 - The 3rd Annual Ride for Help and Hope - AND A NAME CHANGE! Now known as the Ride for Help and Hope. Thank you to Michelle Burns for the name suggestion! The reason for the name change, was due to a change in our Mission. Not only did we want to help find a cure, but also to provide people Help and Hope that were currently fighting breast cancer.We felt our name should be more reflective of our mission.
The funds we raise are donated to My Breast Cancer Support. MBCS provides financial and emotional assistance to breast cancer patients in the greater seacoast of NH and ME. For more information on the exact services MBCS provides, please visit them at www.mybreastcancersupport.org.
October 6, 2013 - The 4th Annual Ride for Help and Hope. This year we honored the breast cancer survivors by giving them VIP status to ride up front. We also had special t-shirts for them, a handmade quilt raffled only to them and all breast cancer survivors attended for free.
A grant recipient from My Breast Cancer Support talked to our participants and expressed her deepest gratitude to MBCS for helping her and her family during such a difficult time in their lives.
This was also the 1st year our participants helped us to raise funds and over $10,000 was raised! Please consider creating a fundraising page for this year's ride by CLICKING HERE.

August 15, 2015- The 6th Annual Ride for Help and Hope. New name, new logo and now a NEW DATE ~ August! After five years of riding in cooler and sometimes wet temperatures, we decided it was time for a change! And what a blast it was! Sunny and warm, no rain, t-shirt riding for sure.
And what a great time for that as this was our 1st year we introduced our Bling your Bra contest. What a blast! Hopefully this year we can get a few more to participate in the fun. Visit our BREASTOBERFEST for details and rules on the contest.
Our riders also had a blast in our "make shift" photo booth. They dressed up in their favorite pink accessories (provided by us) and took selfies and pictures with friends. We guarantee you will have a bunch of laughs!
And.......now the 7th Annual Ride for Help and Hope on 8/20/16!!! Come join us and check out what everyone is talking about :)
August 20, 2016 - The 7th Annual Ride for Help and Hope. What a fabulous day! Close to 200 bikes and over 300 people. The perfect mixture of sun and clouds and the rain held off.
The Holy Grail in Epping was such a gracious host. The waitresses, waiters and bartenders all joined into the Bling your Bra celebration and they helped collect donations through out the day. They also got Neighborhood Beer Company of Exeter NH to join in on the celebration and they had some of their favorite brews on tap for the day.
The photo booth was a huge success again and thanks to our event photographer Brian Lumb for adding his professional touches. People really enjoyed dressing up in our fun and crazy selection of accessories and at times there was actually a line!
DJ Carla rocked the house with her magic fingers and really brought the Bling your Bra contest to life! What an absolute blast it was, everyone was so creative with their themes and we all really had a lot of fun.

Our venue was the American Legion in Epping NH and it was the best location! Thank you to the American Legion for donating both the hall and outside facility. It was the perfect location.
We had a buffet style lunch and tons of choices. Thank you to everyone who donated food there was plenty for everyone and also we were able to feed some of our Veterans at the Legion too.
The event brought in over $16k to be donated again, bringing out total donated to MBCS to almost $100,000.00 since 2012!!
