12th Annual Krusin for Kids Charity car show

Midvale, UT (August 2006)

The 12th Annual Krusin for Kids Charity car show raised a phenomenal $28,266.00 this weekend to help buy special bikes for the special patients at Shriners Hospital for Children.  According to show coordinator, Karen Jensen, these bikes make it possible for many children, some who do not have the use of their legs, to “get out and about and the trike is theirs to keep.” 

A typical modified bike costs $800 – $1500. Krusin for Kids organization donates100% of ALL proceeds to the children of the Shriners Hospital Adaptive Bike Program.  According to Karen, “it is hard for many parents to afford these bikes without the generous support of companies like HPC”. “These children need help and it is our goal to make their wishes come true and keep them off of the waiting list for these adaptive bikes.”

This show is supported each year by many Corporate and Community leaders; one well known leader in the classic car show world is “Cruise Night and Classic Car show DJ, JC, Hackett.  At this weekend’s event, he told HPC Marketing Director, Lisa Leonard, “No one else does what you guys do.”  “You not only support charity events like this but you are industry related and for these hotroders, they only want to take their car down once.  They want it fixed, fixed once and fixed right!  That is why they go to HPC.”
