Rumble For The Heartland (RFTH) is a family-friendly signature charity motorcycle tour, founded by actor and motorcycle enthusiast, Lorenzo Lamas, and veteran television producer, Chad Greulach, as an effort to raise funding and awareness for veterans and active duty military.
The tour combines national landmarks and points of interest with signature motorcycle rides and headliner entertainment to create excitement to benefit two honorable beneficiaries: Operation Homefront and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The inaugural RFTH broke ground on August 9, during Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, 2011 where a pack of supporters were lead by Lorenzo Lamas and US Army Colonel Dino Sarracino from Devils Tower, WY (America’s 1st National Landmark) to The Legendary Buffalo Chip for headliner performances by Toby Keith and Poison.
On Sept. 2, Rumble For The Heartland Tour #2 will stage in Nashville, TN. Riders will learn the history, legend and significance of the 101st Airborne Division, stationed at nearby Ft. Campbell, KY, then ride as a pack to a private Rider Reception with live music by the Official RFTH Tour Band, Moccasin Creek. Headliner Entertainment for this engagement will be Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson’s Xtreme Muzik Tour at the intimate Woods At Fontanel.
The RFTH tour will make two additional stops in 2011 at Biketobertfest (Daytona, FL Oct. 13-16) and Love Ride
(Glendale, CA October 23). Up to 12 events are being developed for 2012.
US Marine, custom bike builder and Captain with US Airways, Ralph Randolph, joins the tour as the “Official Manufacturer Of Rumble For The Heartland”. A previous build by Randolph to benefit Operation Homefront raised $175,000.
To help drive the national fundraising campaign, Lorenzo Lamas Cycles has donated the Official Rumble For The Heartland charity bike worth an estimated $60,000, with 100% of profits from raffle ticket sales between now and March 17, 2012 donated to charity. Photo attached.
100% of profits generated by Rider Registrations, Raffle Tickets and all Rumble For The Heartland Licensed Merchandise Sales will be donated to Operation Homefront and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
