Top 100 dealer A.D. Farrow Co. Harley-Davidson will sponsor the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure May 19 Columbus, Ohio.

Hundreds of riders are expected to gather at 6:30 a.m. at A.D. Farrow’s downtown lot. From there, the Columbus Police will provide a short escorted ride to the A.D. Farrow Co. sponsorship location on the course, where riders will form the “Thunder Tunnel.” As breast cancer survivors and supporters run the three-mile trek in downtown Columbus they will end the race motivated by the revving engines of motorcycles.

Nationwide Insurance has donated food and coffee that will be awaiting riders at the sponsorship location. Riders will line the street to cheer race participants by revving engines, blowing horns, and high fives.

A.D. Farrow Co. Harley-Davidson is fielding the brand-new A.D. Farrow Co. Kickin' Cancer Butt Crew running team for the event.

A significant portion of the contributions will be made though the purchase of the yearly Thunder Tunnel T-Shirt. The "Tough Enough to Care" shirt is available for purchase online at www.adfarrow.com and at the A.D. Farrow Co. downtown store. All proceeds from shirt sales are given to Komen for the Cure.

"We sometimes lead, sometimes follow, but always are the glue as our big-hearted and generous motorcyclists step up to support yet another worthwhile cause," said dealer principal Bob Althoff. The dealership this year won the Dealernews Top 100 Special Merit Award category for Community Involvement.

After the race, A.D. Farrow Co. will host an after-party at the downtown dealership, featuring a free cookout and entertainment.
