Route for the 2015 Kyle Petty Charity Ride

Scenic Route Drafted By Popular Don Tilley 

Most children view heading off to camp as an annual tradition, an iconic week blocked off the calendar during an otherwise normal summer schedule.

Unfortunately for kids who require ongoing medical care, whether living with conditions such as rheumatology, spina bifida or cerebral palsy, may never experience the joy of carefree days filled with horseback riding, fishing or swimming…unless they are fortunate enough to attend Victory Junction. Located in Randleman, N.C., Victory Junction is a year-round camping environment for children, ages six to 16, with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. Their mission is to provide life-changing, exciting and empowering camping experiences to these children – in a safe and medically sound atmosphere.

Even though it costs more than $2,500 for one child to attend Victory Junction for a week, each individual is able to do so at no cost – thanks to the generous support Victory Junction receives through fundraising efforts, like the Kyle Petty Charity Ride.

In the year 2015, the Charity Riders will traveled a scenic trek from the shores of Monterey Bay to the Ozark mountains (Santa Cruz, CA to Branson, MO) over the course of seven days.  The trek begins Saturday, May 2 and ends Saturday, May 8.

The route was drafted by the late Don Tilley. Tilley was a legend in racing and Harley-Davidson circles. He helped launch the charity ride in 1995 and led all twenty of Kyle Petty’s “Charity Ride Across America” treks. Tilley died as he lived for most of his 78 years; while riding his Harley.

“Don taught me how to ride long distance, love Harleys & most importantly how to be a friend,” NASCAR driver Petty tweeted in August of 2014.

The 2014 Total = 1,914 campers and their family members attended Victory Junction free of charge.

Further, for information and updates on the 21st Anniversary Ride, taking place May 2 through May 8, 2015, follow the Charity Ride on Facebook and/or Twitter and/or Instagram.
