It is with much confusion and a heavy heart I am forced to announce that Dukes Harley Davidson has decided to remove its name from our list of donors.

In Sept. 2015 we contacted Dukes Harley Davidson (our FIRST contact on this venture) to enlist them as an initial donor to help in our cause.  We corressponded in person at Dukes Harley Davidson with Chris Hall, via telephone and email regarding our plans.  Chrs Hall willingly agreed with us, this venue would be beneficial  not only to our cause but it woud also benefit his business, to allow us to use his parking lot as the primary area for our event .  This would entail only the use of his parking lot as we have our own security, insurance, generators, grills, tables, seating, tents, PA System, etc.  We would bring 50 to 100 motorcyclist enthusiasts to his business location.  This would draw attention to his business by potential customers, showcasing them as charitable and amenable, to an untapped customer base,  whether they were open or not.

We felt Dukes Harley Davidson was an excellent location for our venue as it is centrally located between the two start points and was appropriate to the audience.  We asked only for the use of the parking lot, although Chrs Hall made offers of other assitance, which delighted us!

While the founders of Run 4 Larry were out of the area we were contacted by the Chatham Kent Police and informed there had been allegations of fraud made against us.  We have proven this is not case by openly providing email correspondence between ourselves and Dukes Harley Davidson as well as the letters of authorization from London Health Sciences and all relevant contact information detailing our committment to this cause.

Dukes Harley Davidson's only explanation for this decision, was they believed the date was Saturday July 2nd not Sunday July 3rd..

I am at a complete loss to explain the allegations and reasoning for a costly investigation both into our reputation and intentions for the Chatham Kent Police Deparmen,t as well as the stress and costs involved for us, if it is somehing as simple as a communication error or misunderstanding.

PLEASE, if you have any questions at any time regarding this underfunded worthwhile cause contact us IMMEDIATELY!  The costs involved in graphic redesign and printing are rapidly mounting and we are trying to keep the costs at a minimum to furter the donations available to London Health Sciences.

Sincerely;

Helen K. Wolfe
