Inspired by Kiehl’s history with motorcycles and its philanthropic heritage, theride will be led by Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA and Kevin Robert Frost, amfAR CEO, riding with approximately ten fellow motorcycle enthusiasts eager to join the fight against HIV/AIDS, including actors John Corbett, Gilles Marini, and Kurt Yaeger and World Cup Rugby Champion Ben Cohen. In addition, amfAR’s Global Fundraising Chairman, Sharon Stone, will accept the check for the full donation to amfAR, at the LifeRide Finale, Aug. 8, at The Grove in Los Angeles.
Celebrating with the public at seven Kiehl’s retail stores and three Harley-Davidson dealerships along the route, the ride is projected to generate $150,000 in donations to amfAR. At each stop, the public will be invited to meet the riders, learn more about amfAR, and contribute to the organization.
