The donation is the result of activities during a dealer event near Austin, Texas, centered on the launch of the 2015 Viking VI. The $15,000 will be split evenly between the two organizations.
Yamaha is a founding sponsor of HAVA, an organization created to help disabled soldiers and veterans with the healing process through active participation in outdoors sports. FTC has been Yamaha’s corporate charity for nearly 20 years.
“Yamaha is a longtime supporter of both HAVA and FTC, and is excited to be able to increase our financial contributions to each of these great organizations this year through the Viking VI launch event,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “As a founding sponsor of HAVA and official partner with FTC for nearly 20 years, Yamaha is extremely proud to support these organizations and the work they do for veterans and families in need.”
