RZRForums.net Gives Away a Polaris 170 and Helps a Great Cause

When a group of good people get together, great things happen! The membership over at RZRForums.net is one of the most generous group of UTV enthusiasts on the planet and so is the manufacturer behind the popular product that they ride, Polaris Industries.

When Frank or better known on the forums as FJK,  heard about Cody Johnson’s story from BigMike58, he began to organize a fund raising campaign to support his cause. After talking with Cody’s father, they decided that the Foundation Fighting Blindness would be the best recipient for the funds and would continue the race to find the cure for blindness. From this spawned The Tour for the Cure. A tour set up and organized by BigMike58 and Flashgordon of RZRForums.net. These two outstanding members not only traveled over 8,100 highway miles, but they also rode their Polaris RZR-S and RZR4 at every stop along the way with other UTV enthusiasts across the county.  Between their tireless efforts and the products donated to the cause by supporting vendor auctions held on the site, they managed to raise about $10,855!

This amazing display of charity and kindness also gained the interest of Polaris Industries. Thanks to Jan Rintamaki of Polaris, they donated a brand new 170 to assist the site and help them achieve their goal of raising $20,000. Polaris provided the unit along with two kids helmets and Rosedale Motorsports of Albuquerque, NM provided the set up and pickup of the unit free of charge.

The raffle for the Polaris 170 was held at the Rally on the Rocks on May 15th and the winning ticket that was drawn was purchased at the rally! The Gould family of Farmington, NM were the luckily recipients of the brand new 170 and received personal delivery of their brand new RZR to their home on May 16th by 4Nines, the co-owner of the UTVForums.net network.

Up to this point, all of these efforts have yielded $18,455 in donations toward the race to cure blindness! Even though this is an unbelievable accomplishment, the commitment by the site and its members is to raise $20,000. With just about $1,500 to go, several more vendors have joined the efforts to make sure this goal is reached. Please check in to RZRForums.net for weekly auctions and your chance to not only win great accessories for your UTV, but to also be apart of an incredible achievement!
